    Placenta and umbilical cord

    Advertisements
    What did you do with yours if anything.

    For me I got my placenta encapsulated. My midwife calls them happy pills. They're supposed to make you happier and more calm after taking it. I've definitely needed them at times! lol

    I was completely surprised when my midwife brought me my pills. The lady who did the pills also dried out the umbilical cord and put it in the shape of a heart. I it!

    I plan on disposing of mine. My cousin is hoping to be able to be there when I give birth because even though she's had 4 kids, she's never seen a placenta & she's curious!!

    I had intended on encapsulating ds2's, but I just made me a placenta smoothie and used the rest for placenta tincture.

    Yep. I drank placenta smoothie. I didn't use the whole thing. No way. I just cut up some chunks for a fruit smoothie.

    If I have another bebe, I'll probably do another smoothie and encapsulate the rest. I had planned on encapsulating it with ds1 as well. The girls were born at the hospital so it was disposed of as medical waste.

    I had the hospital dispose of it. I didn't even look at the placenta I don't think...I only saw the cord when DH cut it.

    I'm not grossed out by them or anything...I've seen pictures and such...I just have no "attachment" to them and have no personal desire to ingest it or anything.

    I'm all about natural birth...but that sort of stuff just isn't my thing

    Everything & anything that comes out of me besides my baby will go straight into the hazardous trash can.

    This was me, too. I saw the placenta after I had all three, and with DS my midwife showed me "the tree of life". It was pretty cool to look at, but I was all set beyond that.

    I will do what God asks me to do; I will give God what I cannot do; and no matter what, I will trust the Lord.

    Me neither. I've googled it & that's as far as I ever want to go with seeing one. I don't need to see mine up close & personal. Just let it come out of me & haul it away. If they even try to bring it to me, I might slap them.

    ...Maybe I should bring a baseball bat with me so we can play placenta-ball
