Placenta – ingest it? A scientific approach of using placenta-remedies during post partum

Placenta – ingest it? A scientific approach of using placenta-remedies during post partum

Sophia Johnson

"Researching a subject, which has been known and set to use by midwives for centuries, however is seen controversial in most of today's society, sparked my interest. I wanted to research a "non-scientific" topic and, whilst using the newest methods of analysis, turn it into a scientific topic. The film is an amazing opportunity to show everyone who is interested what we`ve been working on in the last four years."



The research project

It is not unknown that some women ingest their placenta as a remedy after giving  birth. Post partum benefits are said to include increased milk production, decreased post partum depression, accelerated uterine regression and a subjective feeling of  "having more energy". We want to research: What is contained within the placenta and is its ingestion dangerous?
