I run in alternative parenting circles and most of the placenta eaters I know of make a lasagna (for the mother) or the midwife will dry the placenta and grind it and put it in capsules for the mother to take in the first couple wks post partum.

Feeding it to others would be a waste of minerals the mother could use to build herself back up again.
