What are the chances of a hospital allowing you to keep the placenta? Do they consider it toxic waist and dispose of it immediately?...Or will they let us have it to do with as we please?
DH and I were talking about the possibility putting it into capsule form to take after words for postpartum depression...Just wondering.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I think you'd have to find out the hospitals policy that you'll be delivering at. I think most of them consider it waste and just toss it after the baby is born.

I'm *pretty sure* that you can ask for a waiver thingie and sign it. I wouldn't let it out of my sight, that's for sure. I saw a court case a while back online about a lady having to sue to get her's, but she got it. I think it was in CA.

personally? I would put it in my birth plan that you want it!! When I had my baby at the hospital I had very detailed plan and they did everything the way I wanted (I had no IV's, I ate during the labour, I wasnt hooked on any monitors except first 10 minutes which they had to do, but after that they only checked baby with dopler, they will pretty much do anything I want if I tell them in my birth plan, they have no right to force you to do anything you dont want, it helped to have a Dr. who was for natural birth)

There are many reasons to want to keep it...
1.) using it to plant a tree with, using it like fertilizier
2.) Using it to make/take placenta capsules that help with many things: postpartum depression, milk supply, engery, hormone levels, sex drive, lessen lochia, etc
3.) To make a tree of life print
