January Jones Really Regrets Telling Everyone That She Ate Her Own Placenta

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.

From Glamour:

“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!

  • I know people who have done it. The make it into like a capsule or pill thing. I think people eat things that are a lot grosser honestly. Whatever floats your boat.

  • The neighbors get together for a placenta cookout just about every week. I’ve never attended, but it smells pretty good to me.

  • It came from January Jones snatch, so it’s more of a placenta Popsicle. She should brand it. U will see it on the Sonic Drive In menu soon. I’ll take a cheeseburger with cheddar tots medium strawberry lime-aid & an January Jones.

  • I think that if your body kicked it out – urine, placenta, boogers, whatever, it kind of shouldn’t go back in to your body. But whatever floats your boat I guess. I just think it’s weird how new moms try to one up each other in an “I’m such a great mom” competition.

  • Actress Barbara Seagull (Hershey) did this back in her Boxcar Bertha days with David Carridine in the 70’s.

  • Cats do it after they have their kitties. They also bury their shit. I’m going to keep flushing.
