  • i think it is a very sweet idea. my 1st son had a huge placenta, and it was used for a medical drawing. My midwife took my twins placenta to plant in her garden. my next baby is due may/ june so i think we will plant something with this one!

  • I've heard of the tradition... I think it a bit odd the bring home the placenta... but why just throw it out right? it will make good fertilizer for the tree.

    It's definitely not the worst tradition I've heard of with the placenta LOL

  • I never heard of that one. The placenta grosses me out, so if the docs could do whatever they wanted with it, except show me. Gag.
