The Placenta: Our Very First Birthday Cake

A little bit of fun placenta history for you!

The placenta is such a beautiful, sacred organ with its own energy and life force. It used to be widely celebrated as the baby’s twin and protector, and many cultures today still ceremonially honor the placenta’s role in life and birth.

Suggestions for honoring your baby’s placenta:

✅ Bury it near your home or a place that has special meaning.

✅ Plant it with a tree.

✅ Consume it raw or encapsulated.

✅ Have it read or ask for a placenta tour.

✅ Create a print or piece of art.

✅ Keep it in your freezer if you are undecided about what you’d like to do with it.

Did you keep your placenta? If so, what did you decide to do with it?
