Placentas are honored in so many cultures across the world. Many cultures practice placenta burial as a way of binding the child to their ancestral roots. Other cultures believe that the placenta is energetically the baby's twin. This is interesting considering the placenta contains the child's DNA, stem cells, and has provided all oxygen and nutrients to the baby starting in the 2nd trimester. In Chinese Medicine, the placenta has been highly respected for its medicinal value for a very long time.
