There are many ways to celebrate your amazing placenta!
- Simply tell it, “thank-you for nourishing my baby” after your birth
- Ask your doula or medical staff for a “placenta tour” – take pics or video if you like
- Plant a tree over it
- Placenta prints
- Bury it in the earth and do a little ceremony to honour it
- Cord keep-sake
- Placenta capsules
- Smoothie cubes
It’s easy to take it home from the hospital. Just bring a labelled container, ask your nurse to put the placenta in said container, and then keep it cold. If it won’t be used within 3 days then put it in the freezer. The hospital may ask you to sign a “Release of Live Tissue” form.
