Intro and Outro

INTRO:

maybe something like this:

Producer Willy Rogers tours a garden where placentas have been buried beneath trees.

The placenta (for those of you who've forgotten 8th grade biology) is involved in fetal development.
It's where a mother's blood passes nutrients and oxygen to the blood of a fetus inside her.
It's how a fetus can grow without eating or breathing.
With the help of the umbilical cord, it's how a mother nourishes a developing baby.
