    Most people have a syntocinon injection in the thigh and a tug on the cord to get the placenta out.

    I think the next step is actually people wiping their vaginal flora on their baby if born by a c-section 😉
    And yes, each to their own. I was just surprised that you thought it was a misfortune that you had to see them...as my midwives really talked fondly of them (not to eat...but their function). I think all organs are pretty amazing (accept the appendix...it's a bit useless), but the placenta more so as it kept my babies alive. That's really special.

    I'm a research based evidence person, so no, it's not for me at this point. If someone conducted a randomised blinded control group study demonstrating benefits then I would reconsider.

    I was asked if I'd like to see mine but I declined. At the time I was woozy from blood loss and focusing on not fainting. I might change my mind next time.

    I had a vaginal delivery by an OB and wasn't shown it; or even asked if I wanted to see it.

    But if I recall my OB was concerned about placental function, so she may have needed to analyse it (or whatever they do).

    Sorry.

    Physiological third stage. As I was still in the shower (sitting on the floor, I squatted to birth the placenta. Caught it. Then dropped it immediately as I didn't expect it to be so heavy. The cord was already cut at this point so I got to examine/play with it. It ended up weighing over a kilo.

    Bub was with dad or my mum. Can't remember.

    Without a placenta a baby dies.

    While I may not want to ingest mine I think it would be wonderful if as part of the birth procedure women were shown their placenta and were able to just have a moment to appreciate what they have been able to do.

    And the fact it's the baby's still makes it consensual. Minors can't give consent so their parents can.
    I don't find placentas yucky- I think are fascinating.
    I find eating them yucky.

    My placenta was set off for tests after my csec- otherwise I would have asked to see it, and they had said I could but stuff happens.

    That's really cool, if a little confronting! :-) I do get a bit squeamish about it but then had no issue consuming it via placenta encapsulation. Strange!
