Recently popularly known socialite Kim Kardashian gave birth to little saint west and in a bid to keep herself healthy she decided to ‘eat’ her placenta. Well she did not eat it raw as you thing the petite socialite had it converted in pill form.
Here is what she explained on her website
“So, I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta. I actually thought Kourtney would have soooo done this, but I don’t think she did,” she explained on her website. “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).”
More to that Kardashian revealed she had done the same in 2013 with the birth of North west as well as part of a bid to avoid complications of Postpartum depression.
“I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of moms who never ate their placenta with their first baby and then had postpartum depression,” she said. “But then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression! So 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.”
