My girlfriend wants to eat her placenta. Is this alright if shes a vegan?

Okay, so no stupid answers, even though they would be easy to come up with. So my girlfriend is 32 weeks in and has decided that she wants to eat her placenta. I know it sounds gross and weird, but a lot of animals do it (even herbivores). I'm just wondering if it is okay for her to eat since she is a vegan... show more Okay, so no stupid answers, even though they would be easy to come up with.

I'm just wondering if it is okay for her to eat since she is a vegan and it is meat.

I swear this is a real thing. Heres an article about it. http://www.parents.com/blogs/goodyblog/2…
Update: my bad, http://www.parents.com/blogs/goodyblog/2011/08/eating-your-placenta-a-new-pregnancy-trend/
hopefully that link will work
Update 2: I believe she has plans of grinding it into pills. She has all the information on the correct and safe way to do it.
Update 3: Although I sometimes find myself participating in the art of trolling, this is not a piece of said art. Honestly, this is important to her so I'm just trying to find the answers.
