  • WOW kinda creepy, I donated mine to a study along with the vessel cord or something... dont quote me but they said that that stuff may have something in it to cure cancers and maybe aids or something...

  • omg I think thats nasty I didnt even see the placenta after I gave birth to my daughter and its not normal to have it still sticking to the baby and I believe the baby would get an infection I know you are suppose to clean the embilical corc 3 times a day antil it falls off but that is gross I dont believe in free birthing ethier that is putting to much danger on the mom and the baby

  • I know some doctors wait until the cord stops pulsing to cut. This is basically on the same thought, but, takes it a little further.
