New mother eats her baby's placenta.
LA Times Blog ^ | April 9, 2009 | Elizabeth Snead

Posted on 04/10/2009 8:11:10 AM PDT by Pinkbell

We thought we'd heard some wild diet tips floating around health-obsessed Hollywood. But this takes the cake.

According to MomLogic.com, a woman
 named Chrissy Schilling had her first baby over the weekend.

And she and her sister celebrated by cooking and serving up the placenta.

They put it on pasta and into a panini sandwich and posted some photos of the meals on a Facebook page

.

According to Chrissy's sister Kathy Schilling's recommendations and recipe,
 the placenta -- full of lingering blood, vitamins, hormones -- is nourishing for the baby during pregnancy, but the nutrients are also good for moms after the birth.

To hear more about how she prepared the placenta dishes, keep reading.

But before you get really grossed out, you should know that animals eat their placentas after giving birth. And humans are, after all is said and done, just animals. And it's supposed to be pretty common in some other cultures, although they probably don't post photos on Facebook.

Follow Dish Rag's gossip updates on Twitter!

Kathy writes, "When I cooked it, I cleaned the surface blood off of it but kept anything that seaped out of it into the sauce. I know I was feeling pretty giddy while eating, so maybe that was some of the happy hormones effects taking place.

The 'recipe' was pretty simple, but preparation was very fun!"

New mom Chrissy says:

 "The placenta is such an amazing organ in all its done for my baby that it didn't seem right to simply throw it away. My thought was 'being the only organ that the human body makes that naturally exits the body, why not take advantage of it?' "

Woo-hoo! Pass the placenta!

What do you think? Are you gonna chow down on your baby's placenta?

Supposed picture at the link. There is a link to more supposed pictures, but one was enough for me. I'm really hoping this is a satirical piece. Yuck.

Unfortunately I’ve read about this practice before. In one case the whole family had placenta omlettes.

Think of all the nutrients that are passed through you're colon. Maybe you should eat your poop too.

Kind of like a plate of melted ice cream, doncha know.

Also helps clean up the nest. But some mothers, you got to watch them, or they eat the baby too.

Just wait until they decide it’s even better to freeze it for the youngster’s 21st birthday. It’ll catch on and the libs will make it a tradition, if not a national holiday.

Humans are NOT animals.

Thanks to evolution many believe humans ARE animals.

This just takes it one logical step further according to hose that believe humans are animals.

I remember years ago seeing a Saturday Night Live book that included material the original cast hadn’t been allowed to actually do. One of them was a riff on this phenomenon; a spoof commercial for Placenta Helper.

“dogs and cats do this”

Most animals do it because it is a breed in survival instinct. Eating it keeps other predators and scavengers from finding it and killing the baby.

So were does she live that she has those type of fears? Chicago, Detroit? Did she invite some friends over for the feast?

Isn’t this cannibalism? Eating a human “byproduct”?

I dunno, if my body expels something, there’s probably a reason why I shouldn’t put it back in...

Aren’t we homosapians? I thought that was part of the animal family somehow. We were taught at school (private too boot) that we were “animals”. Maybe the teacher meant we were acting like animals. lol.

Dating myself here, but there was a time in the 70’s when this was not unheard of. They were usually the 60’s hippies entering motherhood; the ones that did not shave their legs nor under their arms. They lived on a Commune USA and they wanted to “be close to nature.”

I remember seeing the skit, but everything I've read says that they pulled it. I don't know where else I would have seen the skit though.

The placenta is the remains of the first organ for survival that the new child makes. This feamle is eating her child’s first organ. Ah yes, ‘all the fine young cannibals’ the left spawns.

Animals do that too, as well as eating their own offspring.

In much of the world, the placentas are collected and sold to cosmetic companies for processing. All that hydrating and collagen makeup you ladies are smearing on your faces has placentas in it.

Horse and cow placentas. The urban legend of human placentas has been debunked. HOWEVER, a european company did try it with human placentas at a very high price, so they switched to cow and lievstock placentas since they were ‘more readily available’ in bulk quantities.

That's what I understood. In the wild a rotting mass of meat is sure to attract undesirables. I guess these people are of the opinion that humans should emulate animals.
