Health center Cambodia . A man is carrying his young wife into a quiet room. In Cambodia, it is the husbands that must clean the delivery room and burn the placenta. This practise began a few years ago  for the sake of hygiene. Before, the custom was to bring the placenta home and keep it for several weeks besides the new born baby.
