Artist Amanda Cotton has come up with an interesting niche gift item for new mothers, offering to turn their leftover placenta into a "lovely" photo frame.
Cotton dries the placenta after birth, crushes it up and inserts it into a transparent resin, preserving it as a unique conversation piece for generations to come. The cost is a "reasonable" £75, for which you get the organic frame in the standard 6x4-inch format. You could then stick a touching Instagram photograph of the mother's cervix at maximum dilation in the frame, for example.
