Category: Placentas

Many women are given no choice in how they deliver their placenta and are quietly stuck with a needle not realising there is any other way! This amazing organ is most often unceremoniously taken away with many women not catching a glimpse of the very thing that nurtured and grew precious new life.In our haste, we have disposed of a very important part of the birth cycle. In our Placenta section you can read about the ritual of Lotus Birth, ways to celebrate, acknowledge and remember the placenta, as well as practical information on placentophagia or eating the placenta.
