My DS's placenta is languishing in the freezer...I was planning on burying on some mountain... but I scarecely go out, haha. He is nearly seven months, so would it's vital force be gone?
One of my fondest memories was the assisting midwife, holding my placenta and saying how beautiful it was... Is like she was marvelling, little sugarheart.... At the time I thought it was a bit nuts, now it makes me feel all happy.
Did anyone else's placenta leave a little piece behind? About 2 hours after my son was born, I got up to stretch and - plop, a little piece fell on the ground. I scooped it up and disposed of it.. but at the time I found this absolutely hilarious...!
Im sorry to jump in on this thread, but i was referred here by someone over in my due date club.
So after reading up on this i decided that i am going to do it. I dont want to go through the PPD again, and since I am already feeling blue and my babe isnt even here yet... I really want to do anything I can to help prevent it. Also i heard it helps with bleeding, which I take as an extra plus. So here is my question: How do I tell the docs im taking it home? I mean, someone gave me a good suggestion... but can they tell me I cant have it? Is there something i can say to get it without to many questions? See here in Philly im almost positive that it is not something people do that often, and some people have told me that they think the docs will either refuse to give it to me or try and have me evaluated on the psyche ward, basically out of not understanding. Can I get some help with this please? And also, if someone knows or doesnt mind... can you direct me to a link on what to do once im home with it? This is all very very new to me... but if it will help im all for it.
