What to Expect
The placenta is sometimes called the tree of life. It is a sacred organ that lives a short but miraculous life. Many cultures bury the placenta after birth. It is done as a sign of reverence for the sacred work the placenta performs and a symbol of respect for the placenta's death. I am honored to work with such a spiritual organ and will treat your placenta with dignity and love.
You have many options when deciding to bury your placenta. I can prepare the placenta for you, guide you through designing a ceremony, and/or preform the ceremony for you.
Placenta processing - $100
I will prepare your placenta for burial using a ceremony to honor it. Your placenta will be returned to you in a container that is proper for the burial you desire.
You can choose from the following options:

*Cremation is performed by dehydrating the placenta and then grinding it into a powder.
