What happens if I birth in the middle of the night?

With Option 2 and Option 3, the collection of the placenta typically occurs during business hours only. Different hospitals have different policies with regard to storing the placenta in the fridge on your behalf whilst awaiting collection. You will need to ask your care providers what their policy is. Most are happy to do it.

More information about this and any logistics you’ll need to consider will be included in the Placenta Kit that you’ll receive around 36 weeks once your booking is confirmed.
