I took my granddaughters placenta at Beaumont Hospital in MI, we just told
her OB/GYN in advance and he had a specimen jar of formalin in the delivery
room, He cut off a piece of the placenta and put it in the specimen jar for
us, handed it to me and I took it home.  We use it as our placenta control
tissue in the lab now.

    I would recommend getting someone else to do it for you. Unless you are
*really* resilient, I would expect you would have other recovery related
things to think about. With the OB/GYN's permission (and curiosity) I took
my wife's placenta twice. Once for each kid. The local college was grateful
to have it since it is a great tissue to learn on, and I also had an
abundance of control tissue. The shock on my mother-in-law's face was
palpable. She still thinks I'm nuts.

Congratulations & Good Luck,
