Description

The Placenta

In this issue of Birthings, we feature stories from enlightened others who value the placenta. Independent midwife Jan Robinson’s great passion for the biology and cultural history comes across in her detailed introduction to the placenta.  – DANIELLE TOWNSEND

The placenta is the largest endocrine organ in the body and produces every known hormone and enzyme. The placenta nourishes the unborn baby by transferring nutrients, oxygen, water, carbohydrates, amino acids, lipids, electrolytes, antibodies and vitamins in varying amounts as necessary. It protects the baby by filtering harmful substances like bacteria and drugs with a large molecular weight (like heparin).
