With a little advance planning, parents can have a lifelong memento of their child’s birth (aside from their child, of course): A print made from the placenta. The placenta prints are made by taking the placenta after birth and placing it, along with the umbilical cord, on acid-free paper.
What… Why… How……uhhhh. OK, here’s the question: why are parents getting SO CRAZY about their babies? Why are babies such a weird cult? I don’t get it. I want to know what has shifted in our culture the past decade or so that has led parents to…this. Yeah, I don’t want kids and I’ll never have them, but I simply can’t imagine what goes through the minds of these parents who actually think that rubbing a bit of bloody placenta all over a piece of paper is actually something anyone would ever want. And why stop there? Why not smear your child’s first poop all over your hands and make some special, sentimental handprints? Is that any less crazy? I’ll bet there’s even some company you can pay to help you do that.
