Brighton placenta campaigner fights new rules

A Brighton woman who has registered a food business to enable her to make capsules out of new mothers' placentas is campaigning against regulations that could stop the practice.

Doula Sally Cropper, a professional birthing assistant, said the hormones and iron levels in the placenta boosted a mother's recovery after giving birth.

She is among women who are putting their case to the Food Standards Agency.

BBC South East's Helen Drew spoke to Ms Cropper and new mother Amy Robbs.
