Can I request to have a portion of the placenta cut off to later bury?

Yes. Some wish to bury a piece of the placenta either into the ground or a very large pot, and then plant a fruit or flowering tree onto this. Within this private ceremony after the birth of their baby, new life is celebrated and honoured and ‘planting’ the placenta symbolises the ‘circle of life’. By choosing a fruit tree, it becomes a symbolic gesture that this placenta which once nourished and sustained the baby, can continue to nourish the soil to create fruit on the tree, that then nourishes the family.

Please let me know you would like this when you complete the booking stage. This will be wrapped and either frozen or refrigerated, and only applies to those who book Option 3.
