January Jones Eats Placenta

The ‘Mad Men’ star and proud mom of Xander, 17, months, revealed in a new interview that after she ate her own placenta, she felt amazing and would recommend it to all moms! Do YOU think that’s gross?

January Jones, 35, welcomed a beautiful gift when her baby boy Xander Dane Jones was born on Sept. 13 2011 — but it’s her infant son she actually credits for giving her an all-natural gift that keeps on giving, and made her feel happy, healthy and energized.

The Man Men actress had her placenta dried and and turned into capsules, which she ingested regularly — and swears helped her stave off postpartum depression.

“I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I’d highly suggest it to any pregnant woman,” she tells Glamour magazine in the April 2013 issue.

But even if the idea of eating your own, um, organ sounds gross and foreign to most new moms, the blonde beauty insists it’s not weird.

She called it a “very civilized thing which can help women with depression and fatigue,” she told  the magazine. “It’s not gross or witchcrafty.” We’ll take her word for it.

January admitted to eating her own placenta for the first time last year when her son was just a few months old, but admits she should have kept it to herself because of all the fuss it caused.

At the time, dietitians and experts came revealed that there were no nutritional benefits to eating your placenta.
