How long does a body stay embalmed for?

Asked by Cataleya Blackburn

Embalming techniques will preserve a body for about a week. In cases where the family needs at least one day to notify all the relatives, embalming should be the first priority. It is important to note is that this process does not stop the decomposition, rather just slows it down.
