I left my pills in the refrigerator for the first month and I had to take them with juice to keep from tasting them afterwards (especially in my burps) but I recommend putting them right into the freezer. By doing this, most moms do not report any distinct taste other than the taste of the outer coating of the pills and the burping is eliminated. This coating is the same as most supplement capsules unless you specify that you would like vegetarian capsules.
Once you have your bundle of joy your family will bring the placenta home and then call Shae. She will come and while you are at home after your home birth or while you are in the hospital Shae will come in and process the placenta. This two day process will make around 90-120 pills depending on size of the placenta.
