The placenta from my last & 4th child (she is now 20 yrs. & 3 months of age) was in the freezer for almost 6 years. I am a homebirthing Certified Nurse-midwife who is also a long time ago homebirthing Mama of 4 children. So,the children grew up knowing all about birthin' babies, etc. For the last one, she began asking lots of questions about it when she was almost 6 yrs. old, so I showed her in the freezer the doulbe bag that contained her placenta and asked if she was ready to bury it, yet. She answered, yes, so we took it out, defrosted it & I explained all the parts & functioning to her & we buried it together out on the northeaast side of the house under a grouping of pine trees.
