Placenta encapsulation was something I was always interested in, probably due to the fact that I grew up on a farm and witnessed mother cows consume their "afterbirth." It was normal and accepted for this mammal to do so, so why wouldn't a human do it? Of course, I wasn't intrigued by the thought of eating mine raw, and honestly I wouldn't feel comfortable cooking it up like fillet mignon with a side of steak sauce either. Encapsulation made sense to me tho, you reap so many benefits from ingesting your placenta and these benefits were definitely worth going to all the trouble, I thought. So I researched how to do it myself. The most helpful article I came across was from Peaceful Parenting and I attempted my own version, which was quite successful. I wanted to share step by step pictures so if this is something you want to do, maybe this post can help you encapsulate your own placenta!
I had an emergency c-section, but was still able to keep my placenta! This is what they put it in, and I packed a cooler with ice and kept it in there 2 days until I got home.
I have heard of placentas being called "the tree of life" and thought the branches were beautiful.
