How much is too much? Jenny Mollen pushes the limits of social media oversharing by posting a picture of her placenta after giving birth to her first child with husband Jason Biggs on Feb. 15.
Jenny Mollen and Jason Biggs welcomed their son Sid, affectionately known on Twitter as #BabyBiggs, on Feb. 15. The couple shared many pics and videos from the birth on their individual Instagram accounts, and now we’re wondering if the couple have gone too far.
Jenny Mollen — Bloody Placenta Posted On Twitter
This might be crossing the line a little bit, no? After announcing the birth of their son Sid with a series of Instagram videos and pictures, 35-year-old Jason Biggs’ wife Jenny Mollen posted a graphic photo of her placenta after it was taken out of her abdomen.

Jenny Slams ‘Good Morning America’ For ‘Oversharing’ Comments
On Feb. 20, the day before Jenny posted a photo of her placenta online, Good Morning America aired a produced segment focusing on how Jenny and Jason overshared the birth of their son, Sid. As if that weren’t bad enough, Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer, and Josh Elliot chimed in during the live broadcast. Josh even referred to oversharing on social media as a way of people “validating” themselves online.
Jenny was quick to get back on Twitter — of course — and fire back at Good Morning America:
Thank you @GMA for telling me what is appropriate for online consumption and what is not. An understanding of basic math might help you and your pollers notice that nothing was posted online until 3 days after my son’s birth. Furthermore, if you think the videos on my Instagram were too intimate, you should see the ones I didn’t show. In a society where everything is contrived and staged and overly polished, I’d think something real and honest would be a welcomed change.
Tell us your thoughts, HollyMoms — Do you agree with GMA or Jenny?
