Tree of Life (Burial of Placenta)

Many cultures around the world have planted the placenta since the beginning of time. Some believe that after death, the soul must retrace the journeys undertaken in life until it reaches the burial place of its placenta jacket. The ritual has come and remained in the West, with many parents who have found another way of paying homage to the miracle of life & symbolizing the baby's link to Mother Earth. With a tree of your choice & a love letter to your child, the placenta will be buried in a decorative pot, allowing later transplantation to a more permanent home.
