What Do You Do With The Placenta After Baby Delivery? by expert1(m): 5:12pm On Aug 29, 2021
Hello Nairalanders and Guests.

I am just curious to know what to do with the placenta after birth, and I am sure many young men as first timers feels the same if handed the placenta after his wife delivers a child.

Especially to young guys that are just raising a family. I know that culture varies but in Yoruba tribe for example, placenta are meant to be buried. Buried where? On your land or you have to encroach another man's land to bury that? grin

As a father or grandfather kindly share your experience on how to dispense placenta after delivery.

Many thanks.

It is disposed as medical waste except requested by the mother for cultural or traditional rights.

Some Doctors normally use it to eat rice and stew.

They say it's more nutritious than beef.

No, it's not. It's educative. People like me don't know what they do with it except the conspiracy theory that surrounds it which still doesn't give an answer.

There is a Yoruba adage that says "Ojo ta ba ribi ni ibi nwole" which means the same day you see a placenta is the same day we bury it, grin

I actually buried a particular placenta the next day and usually laugh when I hear that adage grin

I think it is a difficult situation to bury the stuff for those living in the urban area.

It is not disgusting, that's why I posted it in the family section.

Many young dad will have to google what to do with placentas grin

Should it be buried or eaten? Many usually bury it. The question of where and why to bury it also arises at times.

Many oyibo women do eat their baby's placenta after delivery, claiming that it suppresses this, improves that and enhances the other. No scientific backup to any of these o.

Check those birth forums and you'll see them discussing different recipes for placenta. Yuck.

Take it, burn it to ashes, issue some commands to the ashes and bury it in a location no one knows...
