    Default Is it good to consume placenta if you used drugs for birth?

    I have a friend that suffered really bad PPD after #1, and she's thinking about #2 and doing things differently. She has some kind of condition though... can't remember what...she has to have hospital births, though I can't remember if they are c-sections or not. Anyway... so, does it make a big difference if you had drugs during birth as to encapsulating/consuming your placenta? Anyone know?

    I don't know the answer to this, but I've always wondered about it too! I am sure someone around here can provide some answers.

    Yes, definitely! She might have to sign a liability waiver form since hospitals consider placentas to be bio-hazards. And if she has a c-section, she'll probably want to notify her doctor in advance & have a container ready for it in the OR, or it might have been disposed of before she thinks to ask. Here's an FAQ page from a mom who does placenta encapsulations.

    i know that many hospitals consider anything exposed to blood to be a biohazard aand will not allow you ro have it no matter what waiver you sign. We tried to get DSS's prosthetic heart valve (metal), and there was absolutely no way we could get it, even though technically it could be sterilized fairly easily. Good luck with the placenta.
