Did you know that you gain a disposable organ during pregnancy? According to the Lamaze website, “The placenta is made from the same cells that make the baby – sperm and egg. Some cells differentiate into the baby and others go on to form the placenta. The placenta does its job supporting and nourishing the baby and when it is no longer needed, it is expelled, making it the body’s only disposable organ.”
Our bodies are incredible!
