I still have my placenta in the freezer and I am considering hiring someone to encapsulate it. Have to talk it over with DH. It was nice reading peoples responses here.

Mara, I suspect you signed away all rights to everything but the baby back then!
I know my husband had to go to emergency one time (in the 1950s) because of burns and they refused to tell him what they were injecting him with. Back then doctors knew everything and you weren't allowed to ask.

I had DD2's placenta encapsulated and found it really helpful. I felt like I had higher energy levels and more emotional stability. Prelliminary data from of a study indicates that cooking and dehydrating the placenta does not destroy many beneficial compounds found in it (see http://blog.placentabenefits.info/in...ies-continued/). If there isn't anyone who professionally encapsulates placentas in your area, you can find instructions online for how to do it yourself.
