Im seriously considering taking my placenta home this time round (not due until december) and turning it into captules to take during birth recovery.
What are you planning to do with yours, or what have you done in the past?

I got the hospital to dispose of it, creeps the heck out of me but each to their own

Well hubby is still adamant he's eating it but I'll believe that when I see it! As far as I'm concerned the hospital can do what they want with it!

DS1 and DS2, we left their placentas at the hospital. DS3's is in the freezer. I'm going to plant an orange tree and use his placenta to help it grow.

I know a few families that freeze the placentas to eat as pate or plant together as a family, but from experience please correctly label the placenta.

Nothing I did have a good look at them in hospital when the midwives showed me but that's it, more than likely that's what I will be doing this time around too.
