Igbo ‘tribeswomen’ and placenta reverence

So I saw this in the afternoon (when I was supposed to be working, never you mind) and after rolling my eyes, I thought I should ask. I don’t know everything after all.

According to this episode of Criminal Minds, Igbo tribeswomen believe that the placenta is the child’s dead twin (in the womb naturally) and revere it as such.

Biko, does this happen in your village? Enquiring minds want to know.
