Gawler Health Service
The last couple of times I have collected a placenta from Gawler, it's been a refreshing chance to have a chat with the midwives on duty who stop to ask me questions about "this whole placenta encapsulation thing"!
It is the policy of Gawler Health Service to keep your placenta for a week in a fridge with all the other placentas birthed there unless the hospital deems it necessary to be sent for histopathology. For this reason it is important that you are clear with the hospital at all times that you will be taking your placenta home (they can't keep it or test it without your permission) and with the exception of one staff member, none of my clients have had a problem!
I've worked with a number of clients from Freeling, Hewett, Willaston, Balaklava and surrounding areas who have chosen to birth at Gawler and have their placenta encapsulated.
