NBC News/TODAY "Placenta Prints, Live Tweeting Labor: Pregnancy Trends Gone Too Far?" - While the headline is intentionally extreme, the article itself is mostly just informative (but while we are on the topic, wasn't TODAY the show that hosted a couple on-air births recently?!). Thanks TODAY for using one of our prints for your article, even if your headline has gone too far!
Your placenta is the amazing organ that protected, supported and nourished your baby in the womb. It has done such an incredible job of helping grow your child and yet in modern hospitals it is often regarded as nothing more than "medical waste" after it is born. In many other cultures, the placenta is given much respect and honored in a variety of ways. Some cultures have long traditions of utilizing the placenta medicinally to restore the health and vitality of the mother and to calm and balance the child. Just as it protected, nourished, supported and sustained its baby, the placenta, when carefully prepared for consumption, can continue its job by ~ supporting lactation ~ ~ facilitating an easier postpartum recovery ~ ~ increasing maternal energy ~ ~ easing life transitions ~ ~ avoiding postpartum depression ~

We do all of the placenta work at your home and you are welcome to watch as much or as little as you like. The process takes two days - the first part of the process takes about 3 hours, the placenta is left to dry at your house overnight and we'll return the next day to finish the process which takes another 1 1/2 hours.
