We've teamed up with the fabulous crew at www.babybites.co.nz and are giving away a Capceco Birth to Earth Placenta Kit.
I think lots of women would like to do something with their placenta but find it too hippy, too icky or maybe just too hard and end up leaving it at the hospital to be incinerated.
The placenta is an amazing organ, it's the only one your body grows then discards and it's specific purpose is to nourish and protect the baby.
The Birth to Earth Placenta Capsule is designed for your lead maternity carer to put the placenta straight into it after birth and you can plant it right away (within 24 hours) or put it in the freezer.
Birth to Earth have taken every step possible to design a kit that is as eco friendly as possible, using natural resources for production and this pack is totally biodegradable. It includes:
Corn Starch Bags
100% Recycled Cardboard Capsule
Convenient Carry Bag
"Your Tree" Child's Keepsake Record Book
The pack means the placenta is well identified and will not be mistakenly defrosted by unsuspecting husbands!!
It's $39.95 to purchase or try your luck on the Baby Bites site here
