New Mom Kim K revealed on her website that she had her son’s placenta made into pills which she takes daily to ward off postpartum depression. She shared a bottle of the pills on her website and wrote:
‘So, I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta,”And when I say “eat my placenta,” I mean that I’m having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form- not actually fry it like a steak and eat it (which some people do, BTW).”I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?’
‘I really didn’t want the baby blues and thought I can’t go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones- made by me, for me’.
‘I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.’ I had great results and felt so energized and didn’t have any signs of depression! I definitely had to do it again. ‘Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good. I totally recommend it for anyone considering it!’
She did the same after the birth of North.
