I am in the process of encapsulating my first placenta. I made an umbilical cord keepsake. I'm a bit perplexed as to how to present it.
I have a few ideas and made a poll. Feel free to add other ideas! I searched and didn't find anything.

What a sweet idea! And that would be so easy to do. Thank you so much for your suggestion!
This is what I do for most of them. Sometimes I just Ziploc it though if I know they have a shadow box or something for it ready to go.

I don't encapsulate placentas (yet! But I would love to add it to my services) but I would love to do something like this for my clients! But I'm not sure how I would go about getting the cord if they weren't keeping the placenta (hospital birth)?
The person I do know that encapsulates placentas makes the umbilical cord into a heart and then gives it to the mommy in a little velvet bag. So beautiful!
