Mum reveals how she decorated her baby’s nursery with artwork made from her PLACENTA.
Michelle Amaya-Schmidt, 40, from New Mexico, used the bloody organ to create five creative prints after giving birth to her son Asher four months ago, reports The Sun.
Michelle explained: “I had a miscarriage two years ago at ten weeks, so giving birth to Asher was all the more special.
“I wanted to catalogue every aspect of his birth and remember it forever – and that included making a print.
“My doula, a woman who supported my birth, asked me if I wanted prints made of my placenta.
“I’d not heard of it before but I agreed.”
Midwife Alyssa Hope who created the art by printing the organ onto crisp white paper.
Five weeks later, Michelle was presented with the unusual post-pregnancy gift, using the five prints to decorate her house.
Proud mum Michelle revealed: “I was delighted by it.
“I’ve put it up in his room surrounded by other mementos from his birth, like his hand and foot prints and ultrasound photos.
“People thought it was very unusual, but I explained to them what it is and why I did it, and now they think it’s kind of cool.
“My husband Nathan wasn’t freaked out by it. He thinks the prints are great.”
I couldn’t do that. I think I would even prefer to take the capsules than have the art hanging on the wall.
