Placenta popularity on the rise

It wasn because he had just watched his wife spend 41 tortured hours trying to dislodge something the size of a Christmas turkey from her abdomen. It was, as he repeated endlessly, because he loved his new baby so much.He dabbed at his eyes each time he peered into the bassinet. He sobbed when I hung her small socks on the clothes line. He finally snapped out of it when I asked him to help me recover the pieces of my memory obliterated by anaesthetic gas and sleep deprivation, and he was nudged into remembering the appearance of the placenta.The tender looks of the past three days vanished, his face contorted with disgust and he said, through gritted teeth: “It was repulsive. It looked like a really old man balls.”Until recently, in Western cultures, his reaction would have been considered quite normal. Other than revulsion, what was there to feel replica watches for a lump of meat whose job was now done?At best you might follow Maori tradition and bury the placenta, reinforcing your child connection to the land, replica watches but more likely you would order the thing hurled into a bin labelled “clinical waste” and never think of it again.But now, with its range of nutrients, proteins and minerals, placenta is fast becoming the organ du jour. Animal or human, placentas are avoiding the incinerator and finding life after birth as health and beauty treatments.Spice Girl turned fashion arbiter Victoria Beckham is reportedly a fan of sheep placenta facials.Mad Men star January Jones saved her son afterbirth and swallowed it in capsule form to boost her post natal health. In Switzerland you can pay for placenta injections, while in Japan you can drink pig placenta smoothies.In New Zealand we are catching up fast.Megan Exelby partner is an obliging man.After the Hamilton woman gave birth to their second child, he carried out her wishes by chopping up the placenta and freezing it in bite size pieces.”He wasn keen on doing it,” replica watches Exelby says. “But he did it.”The 26 year old ate a few of the placenta portions each day, h replica watches iding them in spoonfuls of yoghurt to make it more palatable.Exelby, a politics student, decided to eat her afterbirth after reading about the growing practice placentophagy online.Proponents of placentophagy point out that almost all other mammals eat their placentas, that afterbirth has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine, and that anecdotal evidence and some sketchy science suggests that consuming placenta can prevent post natal depression, reduce post partum haemorrhage, help maintain energy levels, boost milk production and replace lost iron.Conclusive research, however, is non existent and medical experts say the practice is pointless.The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists vice president of women health, Stephen Robson, says positive responses are most likely attributable to the placebo effect.”Animals may have nutritional deficiencies at the time of birth, and eating the placenta is similar to their normal diet and helps maintain nutrition. And there is absolutely no evidence that it has any benefit in humans.”After weighing up the arguments Exelby felt that the relentlessly positive feedback from mothers who had taken the leap was enough to give it a try herself.”The main claims for me were that it helped with production of breast milk and it helped prevent post natal depression,” she says.”I had some issues breastfeeding my first child and because I already had one young child at home I was worried about getting post natal depression.”Exelby suffered neither problem and if she ever has another child, placenta will be back on the menu.Few fans of placentophagy are as brave. They might want the touted benefits of the practice but the thought of swallowing afterbirth makes them queasy. Professional placenta encapsulators are popping up to solve the problem.
