Will my birth partner or I have to handle the placenta?

Not unless you want to! Your birth partner may be asked to place the container in the cool bag/fridge, but usually the midwives will make sure your placenta is safely inside the leak-proof food bag and container before handing it over. In any event, if you’re squeamish don’t worry, your midwife won’t be and will be happy to help if you ask.
