What did you do with the placenta?
 
I'm trying to figure out what we're going to do with the placenta. Right now I'm in between encapsulating it and just burying it/planting a tree over it. What did you/will you do with yours?

We planted a pear tree over Tanith's and an apple tree over my loss. I think we're planting a nut tree of some kind over Tesla's, but for now it resides in the freezer, waiting.

I'm encapsulating after doing a few prints :) I'm super happy about it!

I want to encapsulate it but don't know how I'll pull that off with so many people staying at my house during and after the baby is born. I really don't want to deal with the stares and comments. I'll have family around for at least 3 weeks after the fact so it will be a while before I get enough privacy to do it myself.

I won't bother with planting anything since we're in a rental, so I guess at this point I'm undecided.

Sometimes you can enlist your midwife to do it.

I preserved Thuya's with sea salt and lavender flowers. I don't know what I want to do with it otherwise so that is the state it will stay in for now. I will do the same thing with the new baby.

I'm kind of in the same place.....I haven't decided yet, and when I brought up encapsulating it to my mom last night I thought she was going to puke.

I think I might encapsulate it. I would ideally like to find someone else to do it for me. I plan on talking to my midwife about it next time. I have suffered from PPD after Kate's birth and Lily's... and if there is something I can do to prevent it, I want to try.

Dane's is currently waiting for the ground to thaw so we can plant it. We didn't own the house he was born in and I wanted to keep it with me at the house we are buying. A better connection since we have moved out of the house he was born in, something to take with me. I am still having a hard time leaving that house.

Mine is in my freezer waiting to be encapsulated.

I have a good dehydrator, so I plan to encapsulate mine. I don't care what family says, it's for me not them.

I am seriously considering encapsulating it, but I'm still undecided.
