About This Project

Placentophagy is gaining in popularity as supporters of this behavior claim it has the ability to improve lactation, mood, recovery and engery level in childbirth. The placenta is often assumed to be sterile, but we now know that placentas have their own microbiome. This study aims to analyze the bacterial composition of processed placenta samples with attention on Group-B-Streptococci to understand potential bacterial infection associated with placentophagy.
