After much soul-searching and debating, I've decided to birth my twins in the hospital.
I'm making peace with the decision, but something is nagging at me today that I hadn't thought of- I really want to keep my placentas.
DD was born at home and my mw and doula made me the most stunning placenta print and then we planted a new tree over where we buried the placenta. Her placenta print is now among the "I would run back into a burning house to save this" items.
Nine years later, I still regret that I only glanced at DS's placenta (hospital birth) and the thought of not being able to honor the twins' placentas is just hurting me.
Is it possible to keep your placenta at a hospital birth?
If you've kept yours, what kind of arrangements did you make and was there any drama?
Has anyone made a placenta print in a hospital (I'm having visions of doing it in secret on the floor :)) ?
