My placenta blogging has become quite prolific, so I have created new categories – Being Born’  & ‘Placenta Art’– especially to accommodate this and related blogs.

Please enjoy the multiple emotions you will encounter by continuing to read…

NEW NOTE! … COMMISSIONS ARE NOW BEING TAKEN!!

 I have enjoyed this process so much I am offering my services as a ‘Placenta Artist’.  I have learned an incredible amount from taking this vocation as far as I have.

Anyone wishing to preserve their placenta can contact me using the ‘Contact’ page or use this highlighted link.

What I would like to make for you are completely unique and personal ’objet de’art’ using your placenta, what you want is your choice and I am open to suggestions.

I will not however be producing items that are meant to be ingested.

Prices are negotiable depending on what you want and to be discussed privately.

The placenta is an incredible, miraculous, life-giving organ!  It supplies your growing baby with a means of obtaining nutrients for development as well as a method of waste disposal.  While the unborn baby’s vital organs are developing, the placenta operates as its lungs, kidneys, digestive system, liver, and immune system until they fully develop.  The placenta does this so well that even when some of these organs fail to develop, the baby can survive until birth.  It is a thing of ‘Life’!

I remember hearing it for the first time along side my little one’s heartbeat!   The sound of the blood rushing through it was tremendous – it was all so overwhelming and awe-inspiring!  Truly magical!  I cried tears of pure joy!

I felt that the entire process needed honouring!  I have ended up doing many wonderful things with my/our placenta! – BEFORE and AFTER I ate it!!

.

To date I have done the following…

  1. PLACENTA PRINTING using the blood still inside the bag
  2. Painted SHEELA-NA-GIG images with placenta blood and black food colouring
  3. SHEELA-NA-GIG lino prints using placenta blood and black food colouring – also made ‘Thank You’ cards with the lino cut for my “Blessing Way Sisters”
  4. Made PLACENTA RAWHIDE from the Amniotic Sac
  5. Made the artistic piece “A WOMB WITH A VIEW”
  6. Cooked the rest – PLACENTA BOURGUIGNON!
  7. Had a lively discussion about eating placenta and cannibalism – “Be careful!  I know you taste delicious!”
  8. Made PLACENTA SKIN BABY BOOTIES
  9. Made PLACENTA SKIN “FUNKY-BABY” DISCO BOOTIES
  10. SOCK MONKEY with dried placenta in the stuffing – “FERTILITY COSMIC CONFIRMATION FETISH”
  11. I added the umbilical clamp which still has attached to it some of Max’s dried umbilical cord – I added this to the other charms/ tokens inside “THE ‘HAREY’ PURSE” – SHAMANIC ROADKILL FERTILITY FETISH OBJECT
  12. PLACENTA SKIN KEYRING – with Hare’s Tail & Foot.  The Tail and Foot are from the same animal that made the “HAREY PURSE” above.
