Confirmed victory
Petitioning NYU Medical Center

Mothers do not need an Undertaker for their Afterbirth!

Women who give birth at NYU Langone Medical Center and wish to keep their placentas have been forced to track down a licensed funeral director to rescue the fruit of their labor from the hospital morgue. Many women are choosing NYU because of their progressive Baby Friendly status; let's help mothers bond with their newborns and spend those early hours breastfeeding - not making phone calls and paying for an unnecessary service. Remind NYU that New York State allows hospitals to release healthy placentas that are wanted for religious or cultural purposes.
