i had no idea what category to put this in
the poll has spoken, and people are actually more interested than i thought they would be to see my placenta.
this, ladies and gentlemen, is the wondrous and amazing organ i grew to make my little ethan. you can see the umbilical cord in the centre, surrounded by various blood vessels and things. its hard to believe this gooey looking thing attached my son to my body for 9 months, and also created his bellybutton!
and to top it all off, my midwife said it was the biggest placenta she had ever seen
and no, i didnt keep it. that would be to wierd even for me
lighting assistant=midwife for those who stumble upon this and think 'WTF' i photographed this for my 7 year old as she is very interested in the whole birth process and i thought it might be good to educate her and my watchers insisted on seeing it!
i have put a mature content on this mainly because i am pretty sure SOMEONE will go mental over this
