Not Sure exactly which Post you are referring to, but the Placenta needs to be examined after Delivery to be sure no pieces, including the sac, were left or broken off/still attached inside your body. That can lead to hemorrhaging. And Some people save the placenta for dehydrating, encapsulating or consuming in another way. There are GREAT benefits to Consuming the placenta, including Hormone and Mood stabilization, easing post-partum bleeding, and Breastmilk Production. Some people choose to save the placenta for sentimental reasons, (It Nourished your child for 9 Months!) and plant a tree with it in the ground below (It's a great garden fertilizer, but beware dogs or wild animals might sniff and dig it up.)

 

 I just Tossed Mine. Didn't even Look at it. It was a Pain in the Ass to get out. Literally. My Midwife examined it, then I think she took it to dispose of...

Just bought this storage cart at Target for $25. Think it will be great for keeping all my homebirth supplies organized, and it can be used for the baby after the birth.

My midwives suggested the Depends panties for after-birth bleeding. I thought these were perfect - great coverage, no worries about leaks, and while they were somewhat bulky, they were nowhere nearly as bulky as the giant pads!

I have to second this one! My mw suggested this, and we forgot for one diaper change and instantly knew why she had told us to use it every time for meconnium! That stuff is so sticky but with the olive oil it just wipes right off.

Anyone else heard of HONEY for tears and healing? My MW suggested this and we just thought that was really looney, but it worked wonders!

Thank you for this! I've never truly torn but I've had those "skid marks" on my labia all three times. I will definitely remember this.
