This the second weirdest occurrence I heard of this week. First Kim K gets powder thrown on her and now this? January Jones just told People magazine that she’s eating her own placenta. Organ – which connects a baby to their mother while they are in the womb and delivered after the birth.
GROSS! The “Mad Men” actress just gave birth to baby Xander last September. While she is enjoying every moment with her son, she shares her secret weapon for fighting exhaustion.
“ I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.”, says the actress.
As if eating your placenta in capsule form is any more normal. Sounds like witch- craft to me.
“It’s not witch- crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!” says Jones. I’m glad we cleared that up.
“Your placenta gets dehydrated and and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas,” says the actress.
I don’t know how I should take the above statement. All the other mammals are doing it so we should do it too? Modern day medicine is going to new places. Will you follow? Ladies, would you eat your own placenta? Let us know your thoughts on this.
