Placentas are amazing. I mean, women literally grow and trash an entire organ. Like WHATTT??? So cool.

They also look a little weird. They have lots of veins and textures.

It’s worth a look, though, so you can decide for yourself!

  1. I have done animal husbandry the majority of my life. I have looked over MANY placentas. However, I hate when animals eat them… I want to gag. I don’t want to see mine, and I most definitely do not want to eat mine. Get rid of it, it’s job is done.

  2. They knew better when my daughter was crowning i asked if she had hair and they said they could get me a mirror if i wanted and mid push i said hell no lol.

  3. I asked to look at mine! But it was the ugly side that attaches to the uterus….I didn’t want to be bothersome and ask someone to flip it 😂😂

  4. I think the placenta is an incredible organ. My husband – after I recently birthed our second son – told me: Woah, your placenta was huuuuge! — and it made me laugh.

  5. Nice comparison that it’s a whole organ. So true. Though, I’m not really fascinated by organs out of my body. What is inside should belong to inside, if it doesn’t have a function – chuck it away😂

  6. My nurse was so annoyed because I asked to see it… my boy had a marginal cord insertion so I wanted to see!

  7. Placentas are so cool! I was 7 when my mom had a home birth, so after I watched my brother be born, the midwife showed me the placenta and I got to examine it for a bit. It was a memorable experience and such a gift my parents gave me to help me be curious and awed by our amazing bodies, rather than squeamish! (No shade on anyone who’s squeamish about a placenta lol)

  8. My wife didn’t want to look and asked me to describe it. I told her it looked like an octopus head 😂😂 the OB chuckled. 🐙

  9. I was SO disappointed I didn’t get to see mine after my first but they were a little pre ocupided with my infection and. 102 fever. I was so excited when the midwife asked if I wanted to see
