I can't figureout how to post photos from my iPad. When I get to a computer (hubby's sleeping and I need to watch the boys) Ill post. Since I didn't know how to handle that part, I wanted to wait for the midwife.

I delivered the placenta on dry land. After she inspected it, she put it in a large ziplock bag and waited until it stopped doing its duty to cut it from the baby. I think she then put it in the freezer.

I buried my first and ate the second one. I did have some baby blues but not huge ppd my first which is why I decided to eat the second one. The capsules also have ginger in it. And frankly, the last thing I want to do is chowdown on placenta casserole.

I had no ppd with my second. I just don't want to chance it.

Im also doing herbal baths, taking a special postpartum tea and a tincture to help with uterine contractions. Breastfeeding is doing a number on my uterus.
