“Mad Men” starlet, January Jones, likes to eat her own placenta… gross.
After giving birth to her son Xander in September, the actress admits that she has been eating pieces of her own placenta ever since.
Okay so she’s not actually gnawing on her own afterbirth, but she is swallowing it in capsules!
“I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.”
“Your placenta gets dehydrated 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,” adds the actress.
But just in case you had your reservations about it, January strongly endorses the odd practice saying, “It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”
January still has yet to name her baby’s father.
Maybe she ate him too…
