A Placenta Picture Frame as a Keepsake?

Amanda Cotton is an artist who has found an innovative way to honor the human placenta: by creating a picture frame. Imagine using raw materials provided by your body to hold and treasure a beautiful keepsake such as a photograph of your newborn.

I think this is an interesting concept, especially because you can keep it forever, and I love that people are continuing to think of ways to honor the placenta instead of discarding it as waste material.

Personally, I loved ingesting my placenta so much that I would find it hard to make a picture frame from it and miss the benefits of its consumption. I felt so much more balanced this last time around when I took my placenta and I never plan to do a postpartum period without my placenta again. It was so helpful and I had an absolutely blissful babymoon.
