    ... Do tell

    Animals eat their placenta to stop prey from smelling their newborns. I am not convinced of any benefits to humans ingesting organs including our own, especially filter system organs, but yep each to their own, I prefer a fake iron supplement.

    I kept mine in the freeze for a little while, and then we planted it under a special tree (a gift from our wedding) when we moved it into the garden. I would love to have done placenta art, because they are pretty cool to look at.

    When the ob showed it to us I remember saying to DH 'placenta lasagna' cause we had read a website about different things people had done with their placentas. Someone had made gheirs into lasagna (aling wirh mince i think). Dunno what the ob thought of my comment!

    To the pp's who said their placenta was sent away for testing, do you mind me asking what they were testing it for? I have never heard of it being tested.

    With all mine I had a look and then let the hospital dispose of it.

    Didn't see either of mine. DD1 was emergency C-section and the on said when he delivered it, it fell apart and appeared a bit gritty. DD2 was elective C-section, but seeing the placenta was the last thing on our minds, she had a heart issue (all clear) and no amniotic fluid, a big shock to everyone!

    I would never consider doing anything alternative with it, (too ick for me) and to be honest never even considered having a look at it once delivered...

    We planted DD's under a tree. I'm going to look into getting the next one encapsulated

    Didn't see it, didn't want to, hospital disposed of it. The thought of eating my own organ is like eating my own kidney in a steak and kidney pie.

    To the people who planted their placenta under a tree, what kind of tree did you plant?

    I didn't see mine - I had a caesarean and nobody mentioned my placenta to me at all.

    Next time I'll be having a homebirth and will be consuming mine.
