So we have discussed placental encapsulation a little before, but I have a few questions for BTDT moms! This is all new to me, but I'm really hoping it will help with PPD (I had it really bad after my second baby).

Did you consume any of it raw (like in a smoothie) right after the birth, before having it encapsulated? Did you find that helpful with immediate recovery and energy?

Was the encapsulation done with the raw/dehydrated placenta, or prepared the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) way of being steamed with warming herbs prior to dehydrating it?

My mom has offered to encapsulate mine, so I just need to decided how I want her to do it. I've heard some people say it's best to leave it raw, and others prefer the TCM rout. Thoughts?
