FROM THIS EPISODE

Humans are one of just four land-dwelling mammals who don't regularly eat their placentas after childbirth. But that's changing as, each year, more and more mothers are electing to save their placenta to eat.

Stepha Lawson is a doula working in Bellingham, Washington. She called me up one day when she had a fresh placenta, ready to be turned into pills for the mother.
