The ancient Celts used to do this, too. They believed that the placenta had to be buried or it would be inhabited by an evil spirit, or something like that.

Is planting it cooler than eating it?

Take a whiff of my pant leg baby: Is planting it cooler than eating it?

I'm sure he doesn't eat meat, at least not literally.

"When I was in Australia, they had a placenta tree that was on the river ... and all the placentas of all that tribe, all that clan, whatever aboriginal tribe that was, all the placentas went under that one tree and it was this huge behemoth of just health and strength."

Let me tell you what this placenta is packin' right here, all right. We got 4:11 Positrac outback, 750 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, bored over 30, 11 to 1 pop-up pistons, turbo-jet 390 horsepower. We're talkin' some farkin' muscle.

"You're never told in our house, 'Shh, Levi is sleeping.' No. Get used to the ambiance. Come with us. That's how I was raised," he says.

THIS. My parents raised me to be able to sleep through anything. Quite a handy skill living on-campus in college.

We used to throw a dead fish into the hole where we would plant a tree. They are a little easier to come by than a placenta.

Ah yes, the brisk smell of fresh placenta, my favorite part of working the maternity ward. Certainly you could save one, keep it in a tupperware container or even a sealed plastic bag. The refreshing scent would be better than caffeine at waking you up. But this cold, stored substance was nothing compared to the exciting buzz of a fresh warm afterbirth filling your nostrils. And then, of course, there's the cold placenta sandwiches next morning.

This has been lose-your-lunch theater with your host, TheBigJerk.

Any human remains will rot and become plant food. The tree growing in my back yard over my mass grave serves as a pesky reminder of that weekend.

I had my sister take a photo of mine, in a sterile steel bowl. Nothing crunchy-granola about it, just me raising my drugged head to have a look, declaring, "Hey, that's cool...take a picture!"

FTA: "McConaughey says he hopes it will fertilize the land, a ritual long followed in several cultures."

Yes, the finest scientific minds of Cambodia, Bolivia, the Maori, the Navajo, Ukraine and Transylvania all agree (new window).

The placenta should always be buried. Preferably 10 miles under the surface of the earth, in a reinforced concrete and steel bunker.

I mean, come on, look at that thing! It looks like it's going to rise up, sprout tentacles and destroy us all. Valve could use them as new monsters in Half Life 3...

Great, then the ants eat it. They get used to the taste of human flesh...throw in a little radioactivity from the local power plant..... and....

you cant "plant placenta"

you can, however, smoke it.

Why bury it when you can drink it?

Knew a nurse who claimed that she'd bring home the occasional placenta for her rose bushes. Makes sense...there's a shiatload of nutrients that plants can access in them thangs...and roses are heavy feeders.

No worse than giving them the occasional dead fish (from the aquarium or river), or IroniteTM, or bone meal, or blood meal...except maybe for the squick factor.

Firstborn's got planted underneath a peach tree. The peach tree died.

Second kid's got stuck in the chest freezer and thrown out later on.

All the births after that- I can't remember what the heck happened to them.

I for one am looking forward to eating these new McConapples. Maybe they will have tasty nipples for seeds.

Isn't it technically the baby's placenta?

"Already they've started introducing him to the "sights and the sounds" of the world - including a John Mellencamp concert."

Yes, it's good to get hearing damage started early in life.

I'm suprised they would let him keep it. My mom had some bone removed from her knee and they wouldn't let her keep the bone.

I'm going to get my gall bladder removed in about a week or so. I wonder if it will be good for the flower bed...

Oh c'mon, you lived with that thing for 9 months.

The tree will die unless he waits a year to plant there. The placenta makes the soil too rich. After a year, though, it's good to plant on. Husband's father planted a tree over his placenta and it died. I guess nobody told him. (They're from Norway, they're different)

I didn't keep my son's placenta and I'm due again in 3.5 weeks and probably won't keep that one either. I don't have a garden in which to plant it. I hear you can have them ground up and made into capsules and that if you take them you get back some of the hormones you lost during birth and it helps with post-partum depression but my midwife says she won't give me the placenta if I plan to eat it cause it's "just so gross."
