“In recent years there has been an increasing public interest in placentophagy, which is the consumption of the placenta following the birth of a child. Placenta has been known to be consumed raw, dehydrated or roasted. It has also been encapsulated and made into tinctures.
Health Canada is aware that some mothers are choosing to have placenta processing services prepare their baby’s placenta for the mother to consume following the birth of their child. Eating placenta or taking placenta pills is a mother’s personal choice.” -Health Canada
