On Return to Amish, Jeremiah Raber and his wife Carmela visit Sabrina at her home after she’s had her baby, a girl named Arianna. Sabrina appreciates the visit, especially as Rebecca (who lives just a few hours away) “hasn’t bothered” to meet Arianna yet.
When Jeremiah and Carmela walk in, they ask what Sabrina is cooking. She says “meat” at first and then admits that she’s cooking her placenta. Sabrina says she spoke with a doula about eating her placenta to help with her postpartum depression. Although the doula advised Sabrina not to process her placenta after three days, Sabrina thinks “I think it’s the best thing for me to do right now.” Sabrina tells Jeremiah and Carmela that while boiling it, she’s added lemon, ginger and hot pepper. After drying it out, she grinds it up and puts it in pill capsules for her to swallow. Return to Amish airs Sundays at 8pm on TLC.
