It’s quite rare for a placenta to be rendered unsuitable for consumption, especially if the team supporting you at your birth are fully aware of your wishes. But it can happen, mostly due to one of the following:-
- The placenta has not been stored or chilled correctly
- Placental/Uterine infection confirmed – your placenta can be swabbed then frozen pending results.
- Placenta is sent to Pathology/Histology for testing then returned – your placenta may have become contaminated with chemicals.
If your placenta does end up being unsuitable for consumption, you ALWAYS have the option for homeopathic remedies to be made, as no physical part of the placenta is consumed. Your Specialist will be able to help you with this.
