Anne Swanson has officially acquired legal counsel in the fight against Sunrise Hospital for her baby’s placenta. The current court date is June 21, but apparently the lawyers for the hospital have requested an extension, so that may change. We are hopeful that the hospital has indeed saved her placenta at this point, though we are not certain. It was supposedly frozen within 48 hours of its birth. Since hospital staff allegedly cross-contaminated it, we are trying to figure out how exactly to have it tested for contamination. In the meantime, Anne has found a doctor willing to transport it for her if it is required, and if it is decided that the hospital must release it to her. Additionally, more than one physician has said they will be willing to testify as to the safety of releasing a healthy placenta to its mother, which is fantastic news. I will post updates as I get them.
