After the baby is born and the cooing in the delivery room begins, parents may do a variety of things with the placenta — maybe take a picture, poke it a bit, or just divert their eyes and let the nurse take it away.
Whatever parents do, it probably wouldn’t match London-based designer Alex Green’s idea of turning the baby’s placenta into a teddy bear.
It’s no more bizarre than making things out of human hair, after all*. I’m just bemused that this guy and I are theoretically in the same cultural tradition.
*Which is admittedly pretty freaking bizarre.
