Kim revealed that she wanted to eat her own placenta to achieve a healthy and youthful post-baby recovery. But now that it’s been three days since she’s given birth, can she eat it yet? Top L.A. medical officials weight in!
Kim Kardashian told her doctor on the season 8 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she wants to eat her own placenta after giving birth to recover faster and look younger. But the new mom was still holed up in the hospital on June 18 with boyfriend Kanye West, three days after welcoming their baby girl. So could she have eaten it yet? Birthing experts give HollywoodLife.com the gritty details!
Kim Kardashian’s Placenta Could Have Been Taken For Analysis
If Kim’s baby was born early — she originally said she wasn’t due until July, but an insider told HollywoodLife.com that Kim deliberately gave a later due date to throw off the paparazzi — her doctor might have wanted to take the placenta to the lab for analysis.
Dr. David Ghozland, M.D. who delivers babies out of Cedars Sinai where Kim Kardashian gave birth, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why she might not have had a chance to consume it yet.
Dr. Ghozland tells us:
With regard to Kim Kardashian eating her placenta, a likely scenario is that she didn’t get the chance to even have her placenta freeze dried and encapsulated for consumption. Often when babies are born prematurely, it is sometimes routine for the physician to want to send the placenta to pathology for analysis. The analysis could help explain why the baby was delivered early.
Kim Kardashain Could Wait A Few Days To Eat Placenta
Assuming everything was healthy with mom and baby as momager Kris Jenner stated, Kim would still have to wait a few days to consume her afterbirth. Aleks Evanguelidi, midwife and director of Birth Sanctuary in Los Angeles tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively when she can eat her placenta:
If Kim’s physician felt that her placentia would benefit Kim and didn’t need it for analysis, it would be sent to a specialist like myself. I would thoroughly clean the placentia and then freeze dry it. It would later be grinded and encapsulated like a vitamin. It would cost about $300 and would take a few days to prepare.
Do YOU think Kim will end up eating her placenta, HollyMoms? Do you think that’s a good idea?
