Omg! See the woman who cooked her placenta and shows the process

There was a time when women disposed of their placenta immediately after birth. Now, people are getting creative and doing all sorts with it. From the Kardashians who dry and encapsulate their placenta to take as drugs, to mothers who store them in the freezer for their kids to see when they grow, we've heard all sorts and it just gets more bizarre by the day.



Just recently, a new mom cooked her placenta, which had been kept frozen since her child was born, and she shared the process online. Elsie App, 26, is a certified placenta encapsulator, a qualification she got after completing a certificate in blood-borne pathogens, so to show people alternative uses for the placenta, which they say is highly nutritious, she detailed how to cook the placenta.
"Yep, this is exactly what it looks like  first step is to rinse away the blood.... " she captioned one of the photos.


Apparently, there are different ways to prepare the placenta. There is the traditional Chinese method which involves steaming the placenta, drying it, then grinding it into a powder which is then put in a capsule to be swallowed as a drug. It was this method that Elsie used. In a different photo, the mother-of-two gave her reason for steaming the after-birth and explained what she intends to do with it afterward.
"I'm going to ground it up into powder form to get the hang of all my equipment and I'll encapsulate a couple for practise but the remainder of the powder will be buried in our yard under a tree," she explained on Instagram.
Though Elsie, who lives in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia, encapsulates other women's placenta for them to consume as drugs, she did not consume that of her first child and she will also not consume this second one, because, according to her, she has a liver condition.
