I KNOW! This is intense and wild (and maybe ghastly for some) BUT it is also REAL and AMAZING and an INTEGRAL part of every single one of our individual journeys to arrive HERE on planet Earth!
This is the very placenta that I grew (WITHOUT EVEN TRYING), that grew my baby Fox and has since left my body. I always thought before being pregnant that I would DEF eat my placenta but as my sweet baby grew within, I wasn't so sure. As I held it in my hands today, 3.5 days after birthing my darling, I wept. It felt WAY sacred. As my child slept and I stood in the kitchen, knife in hand, I felt this precious organ was TOO MUCH a part of my baby to cut or consume.
Instead, I broke down in reverence for her life, for my own, for the way it all MOVES and FLOWS and decided instead to save this Soul Sibling of my baby to plant into the Earth when the time is right. Listening to my heart, again and again and AGAIN, is the ONLY WAY to stay true to MY OWN journey of radicalising this sacred path of motherhood.
