January Jones certainly isn’t the first woman to ingest her own placenta after giving birth, but she is one of the few that was willing to talk about it after doing so. Turns out, she’s not so happy about having let you in on her little secret, after all.
“I should never have told anyone about that… But it’s not gross or witch-crafty. Nor am I putting it in a shake or eating it raw.”
“It’s a very civilized thing that can help women with depression or fatigue. I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I’d highly suggest it to any pregnant woman.”
Alright, hands up – which of the ladies here who have had babies have done this or known anyone who has? It’s definitely not something I’m into, but I think that’s because we’re not really predisposed to doing so in the Western world. No shame in the placenta game, January!
