In November 2008, I home-birthed our firstborn son at 41 weeks, 4 days. I loved it! After my placenta was delivered, it was examined and found to have calcified spots in it. I am extremely curious to find out if anyone knows why that may have happened. I do not smoke or drink (never have), and I eat healthy (though not organic). (I have heard smoking and an unhealthy diet can cause the placenta to calcify.) I would appreciate any insight anyone might have! Thanks!
