For 17.5 months now, my DD's placenta sits in our freezer (homebirth in the Netherlands).

When my son was born 5 years ago, a month after his birth we put his placenta deep into the soil in the garden of our home back then (in Canada)and planted a magnolia tree on top of it. Then we moved to the Netherlands and sold the house, and we transplanted the tree to our friends' garden where it thrives next to the tree that had been planted for their daughter who happens to be our son's best friend.

Now we are moving back to Canada, and I'm struggling with what to do with DD's placenta. I don't want to leave it in the Netherlands. I sure cannot take it with me to Canada, in its current state. I guess I could bring it to England and put it in the garden of my in-laws -- as far as I know, there are no restrictions to importing frozen (or, any) meat to the U.K. from the E.U.

I have read about the placenta print...while I like the idea of it, I don't think I'd dare to hang up the print in our new home (will visitors be freaking out?), plus, I don't think I can handle this on my own -- too squeamish....

Any other ideas???
