Yes you do. The hospitals here you just have to tell them before you give birth so that they can make sure it doesn't just get dumped

Yup. It should be discussed before labor though, many hospitals have policies/procedures. Mine wanted me to bring a cooler and it needed to be picked up within 24 hrs, for ex.

And any "dr" who treats their patients like idiots should be complained against and disciplined IMO.

yes you do because its part of you and your child...Sadly Oregon had to pass a law to make sure moms can walk out of the hospital with theirs because so many people are told they have no right to take it or its hospital property now or its considered hazardous material after birth...

I'm so confused about this law. I mean I haven't researched it at all, but to my understanding it went into effect as of the 1st? I had my sons encapsulated (11/20/13) and when talking to my placenta encapsulation specialist she said there was no law prohibiting it. So was it just hosp policy prior to the law?

each hospital was allowed to control what was done with the placenta prior to the law meaning they could tell you you cant have it for really no reason but just to say now. Now by law if you ask for it they have to give it to you, they cant tell you no if you tell them you want it.

YES you have the right to your placenta, though some hospitals harass you and you basically have to steal it lol

She should look into a new Dr. Or a midwife and maybe a home birth.
