Placenta consumption (in various forms) is practiced by almost all mammals. With a few excpetions, mammals consume the placenta after the birth of their young for various reasons. It is believed that wild mammals do this to conceal evidence of a newly born, and vulnerable, baby. Another theory is that this act is a natural part of the birth process to serves to assist in minimizing blood loss, speed healing, and initiating lactation. Naturally, we can't ask them why, but we can honor the innate wisdom of our fellow mammals and participate in this ritual as well. However, many of us are not interested in eating the placenta, yet we can still benefit from is healing properties.
