Anne Swanson emerged triumphantly from Sunrise Hospital on Wednesday afternoon with her baby’s placenta tucked safely away in a white styrofoam cooler prominently branded with bright orange biohazard stickers.
This case has been at the forefront of my mind for nearly four months, so it’s a little hard to believe that it’s all over. I am just thrilled that Anne had the tenacity to follow through with the court order, and ended up setting a positive precedent for other women to receive their healthy placentas from hospitals. I know this is only the first battle, but victory does taste sweet.
KTNV, Channel 13 was there to cover the story – I even have a brief interview.
