Placenta Encapsulation

Postby vonnyob » Thu Jul 21, 2016 4:08 pm


I am wondering if anyone has ever got their placenta back from Our Lady Of Lourdes in Drogheda before their policy of holding it for 7 days? Or anyone any advice on what I should do.

I have been told they keep it for 7 days and I don't agree with this and don't want to give consent, I am prepared to change hospitals if I have to as if I go to any of the Dublin hospitals I can take placenta straight away. After 7 days the placenta can not be used for placenta encapsulation, I need to take it immediately.

Can I insist? What if it is religious grounds that I don't want them to take it? Can they really over ride me?

Thank You
