Have any of your IP's ever used the placenta to plant a tree, something like that?

Just curious :)

No, they have not. I'm not sure if any of them would have been interested.

:(

I'd consider asking my current IP's about it though. They are local and seem to be more open to that kinda thing.... It might be a bit odd though, if baby was born in the winter, to keep the placenta in the freezer for months.  Ah, maybe not.

You could keep it and encapsulate for you/other mamas' postpartum.

I had my baby in February and my placenta is still in my freezer.  I was going to encapsulate it but decided not to and I think I will plant it once it thaws.

It's especially interesting since we moved in with my inlaws temporarily and my placenta is now in THEIR freezer ;)

Or maybe even you could keep it and plant it in honor of your surrogacy

I like that idea!
