What did you do with yours?

Did you just send it off to pathology, dry it, not cut the cord, eat it in caspules or a smoothie?

 

My fiancee is Native American and very in touch with his heritage. So when it came time to deal with the placenta, he knew exactly what he wanted me to do with it. I personally, wouldnt have thought of it, but its important to him, so we had it saved and its still sitting in our freezer. We plan to take it to the reservation where he was born, bury it, and plant a tree there for our daughter, cementing her place on their land and in their bloodlines.

What did you do with yours?

Mine had to go to the pathologist because I had placental abruption with both, but I've always thought planting a tree over it is really cool! Enjoy!

Mines in my freezer. I'm going to encapsulate it, tincture it, and maybe make a few strips of jerky.
