These are a family treasure. Each print is unique, and artfully displays the size, shape and general appearance of the placenta. It is the foetal side of the placenta that is used, to give the distinctive 'the tree of life' shape to the print. Your print can be framed as a piece of art to hang on the wall in your child’s room, or other areas of your home, or you can keep it as a personal keepsake in a scrapbook, journal, or photo album, etc.
The prints are done before any washing or preparing of the placenta occurs, as it is the natural placenta blood that creates the print, and the prints are done on acid-free artists paper. Because it is done using the natural placenta blood that creates the print, they need to be kept out of direct light or sunlight, and if framing, framed using light protective glass. Keeping your print out of direct sunlight to best preserve it over time.
