Lagos - Immediately after all three births of her children, Jennifer Bulcock would tuck in to a plate of her own bloody placenta chopped into small pieces, Mirror reported.
Every time the 31-year-old woman gave birth she would bond with her newborn baby and then get ready to do another job, which was to dig into a plate full of her own placenta.
The woman suffers from severe premenstrual syndrome and was distressed that she would develop postnatal depression. She was willing to try anything to reduce the two conditions.
Inquiring with a midwife made her feel at ease as she did not see anything wrong with the idea.
