    Default Placenta pills... still good???

    I have a few placenta pills left, but I have to admit that they have been left unrefrigerated at least once or twice for a day or two here or there. Like, when we flew from America to Africa, we traveled for three days, and they were definitely just in my bag that whole time, and for however long it took me to find them in my luggage and stick them back in the fridge. So... would they still be good???? Or should I toss them??? I'm actually feeling like I could really use a little boost, so taking them is appealing, but, I don't want to make myself sick or anything. They are from my daughter's placenta, so, under 7 mos old.

    What do you think?

    I just HAVE to ask....how did you go about preparing the placenta? This whole topic interests me.....in an odd sort of way! LOL I learned a little about it when I was pregnant with either #2 or #3 I can't remember....I'd be curious to hear your experience with it all...

    I had someone prepare mine, but basically she cleaned it and cut it up, dehydrated it the placenta and then ground it up in a coffee grinder and put it in capsules.

    I am not sure but personally I would still take them. I never had mine in the fridge, I didn't know I was supposed to keep them in there, oops! I really think you will be fine to take them.

    Someone encapsulated mine for me. I handed it off at the hospital, and got a bag full of pills back a couple days later. Only cost me $150! Steal of the birth!

    Thanks Marcia... I think I might go ahead and take them.

    How cool! Thank you! Well, it appears that my midwife does this LOL and offers it to clients at no extra cost! Something I will be seriously considering....I guess my only hesitation would be on religious grounds....I'll have to research that part out.

    They dehydrate it, right? I would think that it would be totally fine ~ like beef jerky or something that could be left out at room temp?

    Research away!
    Hospitals used to sell the placentas to make money, encapsulating them for others. This was in the 1970s. I don't know what they do with them now. But from my point of view, is it really ethical to not take them yourself but have your own placenta used to benefit others who must pay for it? Just something to ponder.
