I made placenta prints two days after Dio's birth. The ones on the top of the picture were done with the blood from the placenta, then I rinsed it off and painted it with watercolors. I think I'll frame the watercolor print on the bottom left, like I did with Zari's placenta print. It seems my placentas like to be distinctive. Zari's placenta had a velamentous cord insertion. Dio's had a battledore or marginal cord insertion--not as rare as a velamentous insertion, but interesting nonetheless. A battledore placenta has an umbilical cord that attaches at the edge of the placenta, rather than the middle. Why the name battledore? According to several sources, battledore placentas resemble the racket used in battledore, a precursor to badminton.
