Although this is something I would never do..., I do know how the placenta is prepared. Most people dry it, grind it and put it in capsules. Not really as gross that way. Especially when you think about the horse urine and other nasty things people swallow on a daily basis. Not my thing though. It is supposed to help with post partum depression as well.

I think it was on TLC that I saw a segment where a British family saved the placenta, ground it up, served it as pate on crackers at a coming-home party for the baby. They said it tastes like chicken. I've also known more than one couple who buried the placenta beneath a tree they planted to ensure health and growth for the new baby.

Come on Mark, if they really love it they will come ( I mean still want to be OB)..As much as I vent, I still go back after all. We recently had a native American couple who saved their placenta to bring home and bury. I thought it was pretty neat...

One of the few topics that will "gross out" other nurses. Funniest thing I've seen in a while - ICU and ER nurses saying "we don't want to sit with you OB nurses" just because of the discussion of lochia.

I have worked ICU telemetry and ER (briefly) and delivery is the most exciting and scariest place, also the coolest BUT I am getting burned out lately...I don't mind taking care of other patients ocasionally, to keep my feet in it....

well it was pretty much by choice i scheduled it to cover s hole due to people out for various reasons. i was planning on being cancelled a couple of times but guess what we have been slammed full and actually had to call in agency nurses to help hold the fort down a cuple of times. i am doing fine just feeling a little depressed at the moment. but do have some nice plans for my time off. thanks for the good wishes!:)
