I have read so many good testimonals about women saying that it saved there sanity and balanced out there hormones! I will be giving birth probally in a hospital but naturally and with a Doula (labor support person). That is if I can't get my husband to let me see a midwife the last part of my pregnancy! So far my pregnancy has not been medicalized at all and the doctor is open to what we want. How in the world would I get the hospital to let me have my placenta? I like the idea though!
