Re: How did you get your placenta out of the hospital?
Yes, if she arrives at the hospital with you, I would give her an errand of some kind (like getting you a 7-up from the vending machine down the hall) right when you get to your room so you can tell your nurse that you would like your placenta discretely saved. Then you can probably get your DH, doula, whoever to take the placenta where it needs to go afterwards. After you give birth everyone is looking at the baby anyway; no one is standing guard over the afterbirth.
