Burning/Burying Of Placenta: Right Or Wrong Action? by Omonigeriarere: 6:13pm On Dec 29, 2017
I know cultures differ about the subject matter. But is there any conventional way of handling placenta? Is there any repercussion that follows outright burning or burying it?

Most cultures prefer burying it while others prefer burning. I latter realised that some White's cultures even tolerate eating it up as it is very nutritional.

Please express your empirical view/thinking here and let's learn together.

Watching out for verifiable responses from 'experienced father's/mothers all the way from the apex part of Okro tree where I am enjoying myself here.

Not wrong.
Whatever you do, collect the placenta and destroy it, either by burning, burying, or even flushing it down the toilet.
I have observed a sort of reluctance of Nurses in giving the placenta to parents immediately after delivery, until there is a firm demand for it. That should raise suspicion as to their intentions, and how important the placenta is.
Fact is, we don't want to know what they want to do with it. Err on the side of caution, retrieve it and do ensure that it is the placenta and not just some chunk of meat tied up in a polythene bag and handed to you.
Please don't leave it with hospitals, with the promise that they will dispose of it for you. Collect it and destroy, decimate, obliterate, extinguish, crush it yourself!

Deuteronomy 28:57-59 New King James Version (NKJV)

57 her [a]placenta which comes out from between her feet and her children whom she bears; for she will eat them secretly for lack of everything in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you at all your gates.

58 “If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE LORD YOUR GOD, 59 then the Lord will bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues—great and prolonged plagues—and serious and prolonged sicknesses.

What should be done if not to be buried or burned?
I'd suggest burning it will be a better idea.

I think it's up to you. There are no medical repercussions, and as for moral/spiritual, it's up to what you believe in.

Do what you feel is the best for you

Well, I asked my son to flush down the placenta of his daughter immediately he brought it home from the hospital.

When I gave birth to my son, he came out and placenta went back. I was put to sleep and it was evacuated. What happened to it then, I don't know. I was naive then to ask my sister in law who was a nurse then grin
