Birthing Ritual?

Fri, 30 Sep 1994 09:49:35 -0400

I have heard a report of a white European female, living in the U.S.
since childhood, who consumed the placenta as part of the child bearing
ritual. Has anyone heard of this trait before? I have not been able to find
any literature on this, nor have I talked to anyone who has.I would be
interested in finding its background and significance, if any. I would be
interested in knowing if anyone has even heard of this before.
thank you for your help
