I've read that the cells and tissue of the placenta can be helpful in some medical treatments. Does anyone know of a place I can donate the placenta to, for medical treatments and research (rather than training)? I'm doing a home birth, so they would have to accept that, and I'm delaying cord cutting, so I can't donate the cord blood. Otherwise, I'll probably eat or encapsulate it because I'm at risk for postpartum depression, but I wanted to look into donation. Thanks!!!
