  • One of our playgroup moms was talking about the expiration date on her placenta capsules. I thought it was a supplement for placental health. Wrong! Has anybody heard of this? Stews, smoothies or dried.

  • I'm a crazy hippie doula, so yeah I've heard of it... but it really grosses me out!! It's supposed to be super good for you, though. Helps restore blood supply and iron, and fights PPD. In some other countries it's really really common, even expected, but still...!
