   I    feel sure/am convinced that 20 or so years ago, someone, I think in
a book,    advised a Pap stain as routine for placentas.   I    have spent
ages trying to track down this authority but have failed, and am
beginning to wonder if a dreamed it.   In    the meantime, I have very
occasionally had Paps done on    placentas.   Anyone seeing the results
would be convinced that I had dreamed   it:-)
