Click here to take the survey now!

The official recruitment letter:

This is an invitation to participate in a survey about your experiences with placentophagy. This research is being conducted through the Anthropology department at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The purpose of this survey is to collect information that can help us better understand women’s reasons for participating in placentophagy and what their experiences with placentophagy are.

Women who are over 18 years of age and who have participated in placentophagy (in any form: raw, cooked, encapsulated, etc.) are eligible to take the survey. If you decide to participate in this study, you will be asked to answer a series of questions including demographic information, your experiences with pregnancy and childbirth, and your experiences with placentophagy. This survey should take between 15 and 30 minutes to complete.

Although there may not be direct benefits to you for participating in our survey, the information we collect can help us better understand placentophagy, and possibly contribute to future research in this area.

If you have any questions or concerns about the study, please contact Dr. Daniel Benyshek at 702-895-2070, or email
