The placenta is highly revered in cultures the world over. It is a life-sustaining organ, rich in nutrients and possessing an almost mystical power.

There are many options available to help you honour your baby’s placenta including making placenta canvas art, placenta jewellery, tinctures and capsules, ingesting the placenta fresh or frozen in small pieces, adding it to cooking, and of course planting a tree with the placenta as fertiliser.
