Kim Kardashian has revealed that she has had her son, Saint West’s placenta made into pills which she takes daily to ward off postpartum depression, Daily News reports. She posted a picture of a bottle containing the placenta pills on her website and wrote alongside the image saying,
‘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.’
The 35-year-old reality star did same when she had her first child, North West and she claims it made her ‘ feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good’’ each time she took a placenta pill. She also says she did not have any signs of depression and recommends it for anyone considering placenta pills.

Kim’s oldest sister, Kourtney, allegedly did the same earlier this year after having her third child, Reign Aston.
Other celebrities; reality star Kim Zolciak, actresses January Jones and Gaby Hoffman, have also opened up about eating their placentas after giving birth in recent years. However, a gynaecologist at New York University Langone Medical Center, Dr. Iffath Hoskins, reportedly spoke about the practise sometimes at the beginning of the year saying that the practice does not have proven benefits. Dr. Hoskins said,
“There is no absolutely scientific analysis of this. It’s five people here, six people here, an actress, a neighbor, a cousin.”

Good to know.
Hmmm this is weird. Hope she achieve her aim though.
She’s been craving this placenta for long, first she wants to eat North’s placenta to aid fast weight lost, now this. Good luck to her.
I think it’s cool.
Good for her oo
Eeeewwww, yuck.. She can eat the umbilical cord if she likes. She should stop preaching it’s good to people indirectly.. Yikes.
Sad thing is, people will follow her blindly. I don’t even think it’s even proven scientifically and if by any means they happened to do that, it doesn’t sound natural to me. Even animals don’t eat the after birth.
Yuck yuck yuck.
I don’t know o but to me it’s weird. That means I can cook human parts for her and she’ll eat
Good for her.I can’t consume that except my life depends on it
Rubbish I don’t support this….. this drama queen Kim can do anything sha
Good for her.
Her sister did the same thing …it’s totally disgusting please! And another form of cannibalism
