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

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.

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.
