Allow healthy placentas to be removed from hospital after giving birth

placenta encapsulation is very healthy and useful in gaining back necessary nutrients and balancing hormones after giving birth. It is normal and common for most other species to consume their placenta after birth. Many people have found it to helpful in preventing post partum depression. Other hospitals and birthing centers in the area allow the placenta to be safely removed from the hospital after giving birth. I am personally trying to combat PPD and want to be able to take my placenta as well as help others who wish to to be able to do the same.

      I had a homebirth and kept my son's placenta. Just because a baby is born in the hospital doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to keep it.

      While this is not an option I would personally choose, I still believe it is an option that should be available.

      while I didn't utilize encapsulation, I know others who have and understand the benefits/impact it has for newly birthed mama's!

      I encapsulated my placenta, and think that every woman should have that option. It helped greatly with hormone balance.
