Facts about your placenta
Your placenta does an amazing job and is the only organ your body will grow for a specific purpose and then discards it.
Your placenta is made up of 50% of your cells and 50% of your baby's cells, if you know anything about organ donation you will understand how amazing that our bodies don't reject this organ due to our baby's cells.
Not only does your placenta nourish your developing baby, it also tries hard to protect it from damaging substances like alcohol, tobacco, drugs and medicines. The placenta of a smoking mother will have hard clarifications in it where the placenta has tried to stop the tobacco from getting through.
