Here’s what you need to know about having your placenta picked-up at Sacred Heart at RiverBend.
Please let the hospital staff and doctor or midwife know you are keeping your placenta. The placenta will be examined by your provider and taken out of the room to be triple bagged and double labeled and placed in a “Placenta Fridge” on the maternity floor.
Call or text once you deliver for pick-up. I arrive at the hospital with a cooler and pick up your placenta from the nursing staff.
I will contact you when the placenta capsules are ready for delivery within a few days.
