This thread may gross out many readers, the title says it all. If you think you will be offended then please read a different thread. First good news: my wife gave birth to my son on Thursday morning. Yay! Everything going well, he's got jaundice due to a minor problem but both should be out before Christmas. Shock 1: after delivery the hospital offered us the placenta to take home. Didn't know they did that. Shock 2: The wife said yes. So I've now got a placenta sitting in my fridge (next to my beer) and I don't know what to do with it. Before anybody suggests it, I am not keen on eating it, although I am tempted to stuff the turkey with it and feed it to the mother in law for Christmas dinner. Any reasonable suggestions? I've read about people burying it in the garden and planting a tree on top. Anybody else did something like this?
