Opened the freezer the other day and noticed an unidentified ziplock-bagged blue package in the door. Thought it might be more maternity pads.
It was a placenta. Frozen. Forgotten.
Not exactly ewwww. I like blood and guts too much to be grossed out. But it was definitely a little…unsettling. How can you forget that there is a placenta in your freezer?
It’s gone now.
