    It separates from the uterine wall and is expelled.  This is considered the "third stage of labor".  Uterine contractions occur when it comes time for the placenta to be delivered.

    And, after the process described in Lisa HW's answer, the placenta is either discarded or donated to stem cell research - which you can stipulate.

    After you have given birth to your baby, your doctor will deliver the placenta.  You push it out, just like you did the baby.  I felt it coming out, but it didn't hurt like the baby did.  The doctor will examine it to make sure it is intact (if any pieces stay in the uterus, that can have life threatening consequences).  It is then dealt with like all medical waste, unless you have specified otherwise.  I never even saw mine.  I was too busy looking at my new baby.

    it comes out after the baby,,, i didn't feel it come out at all. Didn't even have to push. After that, you can dispose of it, or in some cultures, they bury it. I've also heard of some weirder cultures where the mother will boil it then drink the water...
