Please bring a few sliding, gallon sized zip lock bags for the placenta. Sometimes the hospital provides a container, but not always. Please bring a cooler with you to store the placenta in. The hospital will provide fresh ice. The placenta can be stored on fresh ice or in the fridge up to three days. Then it should be frozen if there is a delay.
