I am so excited to write that Sunrise Hospital has decided to release the placenta to the mother! Our press release: DESPITE COURT RULING, SUNRISE HOSPITAL NOT MOTHER-FRIENDLY, was sent out yesterday, and today the mother filed the paperwork for an injunction to stop them from destroying the placenta. The paperwork also included her complaint, and intent to appear before the court forcing them to return the placenta to her.
Today, the lawyer working on the case called the hospital to see if they would accept service, or if they preferred to be served in person. They responded by saying that they would RELEASE THE PLACENTA, if the mother signs a detailed liability form. Of course she is willing to do so, she asked to do so from the very beginning.
This is a brilliant turn of events, and I could not be happier.
We will still hold a celebratory rally on Monday, April 7, 10am, outside Sunrise Hospital, in a show of support for their recent decision to join the long list of hospitals in the Las Vegas Valley who release placentas without issue. Further details to follow…
