Ok that's disgusting. When I had my 4th baby via c-section, during the list of questions they asked when I checked in was "Do you want to keep your placenta?". I said, "Um, no. Are you kidding?". They said some people like to keep it. I said "For what??" They said they plant it under a tree, or some people eat it. Apparently it's the only way to eat "meat" without something dying. I declined. Sorry it's gross, just had to share!
