Saturday In House Gists - What To Do With The Placenta After Childbirth

The Placenta comes out last after a child has been born... It looks horrible and some people insist on leaving the hospital with theirs...








In Nigeria I hear that everyone who births a child leaves the hospital with the placenta and I want to know why? What is the implication of leaving your placenta in hospital? I did not even see mine when i had my kids, I was not shown and I did not ask....

Lets discuss this placenta thing cos i asked someone why people take it along and she told me it can be used to do ritual....I was like how?

Lets gist

  1. In Nigeria, the reason people take theirs is because they fear it can be used to harm them. They take it home and bury it.

    4. I store my kids placenta for stem cell banking for future use to treat any blood related diseases, research is still ongoing to treat other conditions like diabetes etc. Placenta has a lot of stem cells which are undifferentiated cells and can be used to treat a lot of medical conditions. Its 100%match for the child and a posible match for siblings and parents... I am a UK based doctor...stay informed of these little things that might save a life...

    5. Are you anticipating future illnesses for your kids? Na wa o. The cheapest is £1495 here in uk plus yearly storage fees. And it’s still viable after 23 yrs.

  3. Stella, how as how? Have you forgotten how it happens here? Hmmm. It's not the same here as it is over there o biko. I didn't see mine though so i dont know what it looked like but I made sure it was disposed off properly in a bag.

    I heard it shouldn't be thrown into canals to avoid it being eaten by dogs or pigs.

    1. It shouldn't be thrown into canals, gutter or an open dump for the same reason your sanitary pads should be disposed properly which is that it is a bio and environmental hazard. Has nothing to do with dogs or pigs

  5. My child's own was handed to hubby in a plastic bag and he buried it in a secure place.
    In Nigeria, they are not left in the hospital and not given to just anyone but either of the parent of the child to avoid stories that touch.

  6. If you grew up in our part of the world, especially in Yoruba land, you would find that we attach cultural values and beliefs to some things.

    Long before I got to know the biological importance of the placenta to a child, I already knew the traditional believes surrounding it.

    In Yoruba, we call it "Ibi-omo". It is believed that the placenta is as important as the baby itself. You have the baby and the placenta is not out😲, mister man, don't rejoice yet o.
    And it is believed that if it falls into wrong hands, the placenta can be used diabolically to cause lasting harm to the child...and that is to put it lightly.
    It is also expected of the father to secure the placenta of his child and dispose it safely himself.

  8. I remember in the UK they gave me an injection after I gave birth to my son so that I can give birth to the placenta. I gave birth to it and saw it but they took it away and disposed of it. But if that’s naija I’m taking it home at straight up.

  9. That placenta should be handled wit care this is Africa where ur personal effects can be used against you.
    Despite warning my ppl how to keep mine after birthing, they just threw it away in a refuse dump. Two days later, I was in same refuse dump and got out my placenta jejely after searching for hours. I burnt it myself. No time.

  10. One of my confused decisions to ever make in my life that time, and as a man, as the responsibility of placenta disposal was given to me, cut one into tiny pieces and flushed down the toilet, two others buried it in a private property. I don't blame those that cook and eat theirs'. It would not have been a bad idea, cooking and eating it.

    1. Are you serious about this cooking eating of placenta.Isnt that a kind of cannibalism

  11. I didn't even look at mine. Felt like it would be yama yama. I'm not sure they even asked me if I wanted it but I'm sure if they did, I must have told them to do whatever they want with it.

    I get grossed out easily so there was no way I was gonna look at it talk more of touching it.

  13. I heard it is a very essential commodity bought by some people from evil nurses in some hospitals...these nurses have fetish people they call once they have a placenta to come and buy and they are handsomely rewarded after purchase tho it’s done secretly,thats why most people take it with them after giving birth in Nigerian hospitals.

  14. The placenta is the first link a child has to life. It's as good as the child itself. If it gets into the hands of a wicked or diabolic person, the child is as good as destroyed. The wicked person takes it, makes incantations and negative decrees on it and ruins that child's life forever. Yes, prayers can reverse the harm done but that would be, most times, after that child has suffered and seen hell in life. Why not just avoid all that by disposing by yourself as the parent?

  15. I didn't ask of it and the hospital did not ask or tell me anything about it.

  17. I had my children in Nigeria and didn't take it home. No one mentioned it either. I think the hospital has a way of disposing it. It's a company hospital sha maybe that's why because everyone knows everyone
