Consuming placenta after childbirth


There’s a “trend” in US for women to save their placenta after childbirth and consume it as it apparently helps the uterus recover after birth, and helps reduce the stress of  menopause.  Is it permitted?


Regarding the placenta the answer is indeed no, and the Sunnah is to bury it.
