The pregnant reality star is following in the footsteps of fellow celebs January Jones and Holly Madison, and wants to ingest her own placenta after she welcomes her first child! Do YOU think that’s weird?
Kim Kardashian’s Placenta — Wants To Eat Afterbirth
On the season eight premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim went to her doctor for an ultrasound appointment, and found out she’s having a girl! But she was also super interested in another exciting part of her pregnancy — eating her placenta after she welcomes her baby daughter.
When Kim asked her doctor about eating her placenta, he mentioned that it is something moms-to-be are interested in pursuing for when they give birth.
“Don’t you think it makes you look younger?” she asked her doctor. While he didn’t mention whether or not there was any validity to the hype surrounding the claims that eating your placenta is a legitimate beauty regimen, he didn’t discourage her from the practice.
“I really want to do it,” Kim added.
Holly Madison & January Jones Eat Their Placentas
But the strange practice is fairly commonplace in Hollywood. Holly Madison revealed that she ate her placenta after welcoming daughter Rainbow Aurora. Holly said that tshe was ingesting her placenta by having it dried out and turned into pill form.
“I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!” she told Us Weekly before her baby was born. January Jones also said she did the same after welcoming son Xander.
What do YOU think of Kim wanting to eat her placenta, HollyMoms? Do you think that’s a good idea, or just plain weird? Let us know!
