I am so glad you found me to be your placenta fairy!
How do I go about having a fairy do this for me on my birthing day?
---Give me a call, text or email and we can begin connecting to gather some information.
I will then send an "understandings" sheet to go over and move on from that point.
ON BIRTHING DAY
--- You will text me when your birthing begins so that I have a head's up that a placenta is coming to me.
When birthing is complete you send me a text (or call) to let me know.
I will then pick up the placenta asap and then return your remedy to you within 24hrs (unless other extenuating circumstances arise) of me picking it up.
If Birthing In The Hospital
--Bring a cooler with you for any delay in time between my available pick up time and when the baby is born; especially for my "off" hour times.
Also, make sure you've mentioned this to your care provider beforehand and have it mentioned in your birth plan that you are keeping your placenta (to avoid them from adding anything to the placenta for their storage before disposal and to keep the placenta in your room).
If Birthing At Home
--You can put the placenta in a storage container (often a doubled up gallon ziplock bag, or a throw away tupperware), and then refrigerate until I arrive, if it will take me more than a couple hours after birthing, to arrive.
I have "off" hours from 11p -11:30a
During "off" hours my phone is set to silent except for my doula or midwifery assisting clients. I still want the text to let me know what is going on with your birthing-so keep me in the loop! However, the noise will not ring through. Therefore I will address text messages after my family morning rituals are complete and I am available to pick up a placenta.
