Eating your placenta is crazy, has no proven benefits, and is essentially cannibalism

My wife and I are about to have our 3rd child, and last night spent 6 hours while in the hospital discussing various things about the baby. She brought up that she had heard from a facebook group, that eating the placenta was a good thing to do, the most healthy thing she would ever eat. Imagine the benefits of getting all the vitamins, minerals, oxygen, ect that have been stored in the placenta for 9 months. She mentioned that the group had many recipes for the placenta, how to properly prepare the placenta. I just couldn't get my mind around it.

Placentophagy is the act of eating your own (Never anyone else's, they are not sterile) placenta, and has no proven health benefits in humans. It is essentially cannibalism, you are eating human flesh that you created.

I know that there are companies that can makes pills out of your placenta. That would ease the whole cooking issue, it still seems crazy to me, that someone would eat human flesh, and celebrate it.

Update after Placenta Separated and my water broke at 15 weeks + 4

Original post: https://www.reddit.com/r/pregnant/comments/hg0p2q/placental_separation_15_weeks_4_days_baby_is/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

Thank you everyone for your prayers, kind wishes and messages, I’ve been so overwhelmed with gratitude. We had a follow up appointment yesterday at 16+1. Baby Vivienne still has a strong heart beat. Umbilical flow is still normal. Vivienne is behind on growth. There is still no measurable amniotic fluid but it had only been four days. The high-risk doctor (MFM/Perinatologist) strongly recommended we terminate.

To say I was crushed would be an understatement. He was pretty cold about it too. However, we want to speak with our OB and really want to give our baby a fighting chance, not just 4 or 5 days to comeback from something so serious. So we aren’t rushing to do anything. We are resting at home, and enjoying being pregnant still until something changes.

I will share that the formal term of what happened is PP

TIFU by telling a customer their food had placenta in it

Many years ago, before I really understood what a placenta was, I worked in a local bakery.

I was the "soup chef", meaning I took frozen bags of concentrated soup and put them in a soup kettle filled with water. I was simultaneously a cashier. Glory be mine. The soup options changed seasonally, and there was always one oddball soup for every season that the night crew would have when all the other ones ran out. When our spring options came out, the night manager explained all the "features and benefits" of each one to me. For some reason, she didn't explain it to anyone else. Apparently this was highly classified information that could only be revealed to the Soup King.

The oddball soup for this season, Italian wedding soup, was a watery, herby soup with chicken meatballs and tiny ball-shaped noodles. Unfortunately, the night manager made an assumption about one of the ingredients that would lead to my downfall. What she did not say was placenta.

The bakery is pretty popular in my

I'm getting so impatient waiting on the big kicks to happen! I feel her a little every day, but it's still just light taps or flutters. Sometimes I don't feel her all day and I get worried but everyone tells me it's normal, especially with the anterior placenta. My bf only feels her maybe once every couple of days. Just a tiny tap, I have to lay very still with his hand on my belly in order for it to happen. Just wanted to vent for a minute. Anyone else?

Placenta previa and tubal ligation

I'm 21 weeks and have been told I have placenta previa, I don't know yet how "complete" it is, my ultrasound is next week to confirm, but based off of what my OB could see, she's put me on pelvic rest and I'm not allowed to lift anything over 15lbs including my toddler, groceries, laundry baskets...

I'm a mom of 3 and this is my first time having this issue, my OB told me to expect a "Big, scary bleed" that while serious, should just be calmly dealt with and should go straight to the hospital. I've also been told that if the placenta doesn't move I'll be sectioned at 37 weeks. I was PLANNING on a section at 39 so that's not a big deal but when I started taking to her about my tubal (hubby and I have decided we're done after this one) Things got weird. She said she was happy to do one for me and totally understood, but didn't want to decide "now" in case I have "an extremely premature baby" and want another one. Implying that the baby doesn't make it, or something??

How fast does placenta fail

I was diagnosed at 28 weeks and put on insulin at 30 weeks. I'm up to 20 units at bed and only ever had issues with fasting numbers and am 37+3. On insulin I consistently had fasting numbers of 87-90. The last three days I'm between 74-80.

The diabetes center told me they won't adjust insulin until it's under 60. I'm wondering when I need to flag this drop to my OB. I already do weekly NSTs, but the next one isn't until next Tuesday (it's Thurs today).

Does anyone know how fast the placenta fails and if I should be contacting my OB?

Placenta Previa

After some very light spotting (which freaked me out really bad), my midwife sent me for an ultrasound.

Turns out I have placenta Previa. Since they noticed it early (17 weeks), they are hopeful it will resolve itself.

Now I’m finding myself even more anxious / stressed because going on modified work duty means much less hours and I’m about 150 hours away from making my maternity leave minimum requirements.

Anyone else experience this condition? Did it resolve itself?

My placenta almost killed us (Update)

Hello Friends! Thank you again for your kind words and support that helped us get through this incredibly challenging moment. I figure I should give you all an update rather than leaving it with my pity-party post from May. Our baby ended up staying in the NICU for just over two weeks - about a week on a ventilator. He lost a little weight at first and had some minor setbacks, but overall bounced back pretty well. Turns out newborn babies are quite resilient!

I spent both my birthday and first Mother’s Day visiting him at the hospital. Lucky for us the pandemic hadn’t hit our area too hard, and both my husband and I were able to visit him in the NICU 24/7. It was the strangest thing going back into iso-life, and being home neither pregnant or with our baby. But now that he’s home and healthy it’s all starting to feel like a distant dream.

Any experiences related to placenta previa?

Hiii, long time lurker here and now I need to hear some stories to keep my anxiety at bay.

Sooo, during my anatomy scan at 20 weeks, I was told that my placenta was lying close to the cervix. I had another scan at 32 weeks and, welp, it's still on the same spot. On the bright side, the baby is healthy, already has his head down, and has been kicking up a storm.

I'm scheduled for another scan when I reach 36 weeks to see if there are any changes. I understand I might need to have CS if placenta previa is confirmed. Currently on 33 weeks and just keeping an open mind about the possible birthing scenarios instead of being anxious.

Has anyone experienced this in their previous pregnancy? Did you need to have CS and how early was it scheduled? Hope to hear back from anyone.

Bilobed Placenta?

I went in for a growth ultrasound this week to check on baby since my OB couldn’t get a good fundal height measurement. My doctor called me with the results last night. She said everything is great and measuring well with baby and my amniotic fluid, but the ultrasound tech noted that I have a bilobed placenta. My OB isn’t sure why this wasn’t noted or noticed at my anatomy scan, but she referred me to a perinatal specialist in a larger city to get another ultrasound and some more information. My OB said for delivery, everything would be normal for the baby but could cause complications with delivering the placenta. Has anyone experienced this or have any information? I can’t help to feel stressed but I’m trying not to until I have more information. I’m 32 weeks.

The flow from my placenta slowing down

This is my first time posting on this sub and I’m just hoping to connect with some people who have been through this situation.

Here’s a little background on me: When I was 18 I gave birth to a premie at 29 weeks and 1 day gestation. I’m now 24 (25 next week) and I’m currently 31 weeks. My pregnancy has been just terrible this time around. I’ve been very ill and I’m considered high risk.

About two weeks ago during an ultrasound my doctor realized that the flow of my placenta has slowed down, and my baby hasn’t really grown for about a week...he started telling me all of the things that can go wrong: brain damage, stillbirth, etc. and I was informed that they’ll most likely be inducing me within the next two weeks.

I guess I’m posting this because I’m absolutely TERRIFIED and I’m looking to talk to someone who’s been through this because no one I personally know has had a situation like mine.

Failing placenta and Postpartum care?

Hi everyone!

I'm currently 37 weeks and getting pretty close to the finish line here... I will most likely be induced at 39 weeks.

I'm getting increasingly nervous about how things are supposed to play out at the end of this journey (labor, delivery, covid and the hospital [I live in a really hot spot], glucose levels for me and baby after delivery, postpartum recovery). I'm having more discharge and my OB said I'm starting to dilate a little. My body is getting ready but I'm not mentally prepared yet!

Does anyone know what a failing placenta looks like (I'm on overnight insulin only, 8 units)? My morning numbers have been lower recently but not shockingly low. I'm just not used to it. Maybe it's related to the fact that I've been skipping my nights time snacks (low appetite) and I just discovered (funny, at 37 weeks) that if I fast for 12 hours my numbers are lower? What signs do I need to pay attention to?

I'm worried the baby might die in my womb without me knowing...

Sorry, this is going to be super long because it is a very rare complication and I want to help others know my experience in case they are experiencing the same things, maybe could save someone's life. Scroll down to the ==== for the actual birth part, and ~~~~ for the baby NICU part.

I knew exactly when I conceived because it was smack dab in the middle of my cycle and I felt a sharp stabbing pain in the middle of the night that only lasted about 5 minutes, and just "knew". I have a good hold on my body, I guess (important later). 4 days later I had a positive pregnancy test, a week before my period was supposed to start (spoiler, it didn't)

I made an appointment with OB for my 8 week scan, and I found out that I actually had a natural twin that had died sometime around 6 weeks with no heartbeat (this is the loss btw), and one with a heartbeat. He measured exactly 8 weeks. Week 10, the non viable fetus's sac ruptured with a sin

Anyone else.. anterior placenta- minimal movement being felt here

I have an anterior placenta I’m 29 weeks pregnant and some days I feel more movement than others. I started feeling her move around 26 weeks and I was so relieved. 27 weeks hardly anything, so of course I called my doctor. They had me go straight to my hospital to be monitored. Everything looked great. They told me to drink ice water or juice and lay on my side if I experienced reduced movement again. Great. So I’ve tried - doesn’t work. So 2 days later I went in again. They monitored baby’s heart for an hour. Totally fine. And now I’m just feeling her here and there, sometimes stronger than others. I’m frustrated. Telling myself everyone is different, this is normal for me. I have a fetal doppler at home so I’ll check once in a while and it’s normal. Over here trying not to freak out all the time. Anyone else experience something similar? Hearing that would help ease my mind. 😭

Hello PAL family!

I had my check up yesterday, my baby is alive and well! 9+5 today and it wasn’t a formal ultrasound with measurements but I got to see the heartbeat flickering away and babe definitely looked bigger than a few weeks ago. They were doing little flips and waving their little hands 😍😭. I’ve been reassured, if only for a few moments.

However, we were talking and I did get some news about my son who passed away at 20 weeks in 10/2019. Which of course has left me with more questions than answers. They found a fairly large blood clot (golf ball size or a little larger) in my placenta. It’s been a long time of no answers and all tests coming back looking good (they even told me back in Nov my placenta came back look

Any experiences with a succenturiate placenta?

Hi all! Had a follow up to my anatomy scan to get some better pictures of baby’s heart and the doctor noted that I have an additional lobe on my placenta. After some googling, it looks like the technical name is succenturiate placenta. I haven’t found much info on it besides what it actually is, so curious if anyone has had a similar experience. Thanks in advance!

Just got back from OB. Placenta previa and very scared...

First off: we are 15 weeks as of today.

Hi, everyone! My husband and I have been stressed throughout every hurdle of our pregnancy (as I'm sure most of you know) and thought we were somewhat in the clear after our NIPT results came in negative.

Then... I had heavy bleeding about two weeks ago and we went to the ER in tears expecting the worst. They said everything was fine and we chalked it up to regular bleeding as we’ve seen with others. Fast forward to the past two days and we’ve had some light to medium spotting and blood, decided to call our OB and she had us in this morning.

The thing about our doctor is she’s very short and all business. Not one to console or sympathize. We almost changed doctors but our admitting nurse at the ER two weeks ago recognized her name on the form and said she delivered her two children some years back. We asked her opinion and she said, like above, she’s not a shoulder to cry on... but if things go awry during delivery she is knowledgeable and is

Un medicated delivery - birthing placenta felt amazing?! Anyone else?

Birth was extremely painful for me this second time. The first time I had an epidural and it was all hunky dory. I hadn’t felt the placenta emerge the first time. But this time I felt it all. And MAN when that thing came out it was like a warm reward! My stomach felt so much better and my downstairs too. Has anyone else experienced this? Never expected that.

Anterior Placenta anyone?

Hey ladies, so I had my anatomy scan on tuesday and was told that my placenta has formed in front of baby instead of the back. Also during my scan, the tech mentioned that baby's back(spine) was facing my spine. Doctor said everything was fine so I didn't really ask any questions but now I'm curious as to how or if this will affect my pregnancy/delivery. I have felt baby move around since 11 weeks or so and have recently felt kicks. This is my second pregnancy and didnt have this with the first. Anyone have some experience with this?

Anyone else have a β€œlow-lying placenta”?

I had my anatomy scan today (19+5) and baby is perfect, but my placenta is β€œlow-lying” and close to my cervix. The doctor told me no lifting anything over 20-25lbs, no sex, and no rigorous exercise for 6 weeks. He is confident it will move up, but if it doesn’t, I will need a c section. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thank you!

My placenta almost killed us

After 8 weeks of religiously managing GD with diet and nighttime insulin for fasting numbers, I woke up in the middle of the night at 35+5 to my water breaking. As a FTM I don’t really know what’s considered normal, but there was definitely a lot of fluid leaking. Was quickly admitted to the hospital at 2am barely dilated. After a few hours waiting to see if my body would naturally kick in to labor, my doctor decided to induce. I was started on a low dose of pitocin and began to get stronger contractions. I was also still leaking quite a bit. Pretty soon the nurses detected problems with the baby during each contraction and soon all hell broke loose. They gave me meds to stop the induction and I started bleeding A LOT. Turns out my placenta had ruptured and my uterus was filling up with blood. I was immediately scheduled for an emergency c section and the baby was out by 6:30am.

During the surgery we heard multiple doctors comment about there being β€œso much blood”. Despite the deci

Placenta previa... so nervous!

I've searched this group among others for some hope... but I am so nervous! I had my anatomy scan last week and was told I have full placenta previa. Completely covering my cervix. If it doesn't move I'll need a c-section at 36 weeks. I'm nervous that I'm not taking it easy enough. I was told to be on pelvic rest. No sex, no orgasms, no strenuous exercises including lifting more than 15 lbs. I have a 13 month old as well though and not picking her up in nearly impossible. I'm so scared it's not going to resolve on its own and I'll be disappointed at my next scan at 28 weeks. If you were diagnosed with placenta previa, how did it go? Did it move? Did you wind up with a c-section?

Had my anatomy scan today and was informed I have a slight case of placenta previa.

Today I am 19+2 and at my anatomy scan they informed me I have a slight case of placenta previa. It sounds like they didn't get a good view and it doesn't sound like the placenta is fully covering the cervix. What are your experiences with having placenta previa?

Placenta previa.. what is your experience?

Hey ladies, Can anyone shed any advice / experience with placenta previa? Confirmed it hasn’t budged at 32 week scan. I had an extremely traumatic appointment with a random OB last week through the hospital who quite literally advised I would be under a GA (😭😭) likely end up with a hysterectomy, a vertical cut, etc etc etc all total worst case scenarios without actually stating that fact. quite frankly, it has frightened the absolute shit out of me and my anxiety is through the absolute roof. Apologies, I’m sure I could search this term and it would pull up previous threads but I only have phone access which won’t let me. Thank you in advance for any experience (I guess good or bad) which will help me stay informed without falling down the rabbit hole of google...πŸ™πŸ˜–πŸ˜’

Anyone further along with placenta previa? I have questions

I’m only 14 weeks and I just went to the doctor yesterday and she told me I have a very low placenta and said it’s likely placenta previa or placenta accreta. We won’t know until 16-20 weeks. I’m bleeding every single day not enough to fill a pad but every time I Go to the bathroom there’s a lot of bright red blood. Is this normal am I just going to keep bleeding every day until birth? And if so has anybody experienced this and still had a living child from it?
