It appears that Kim Kardashian will be tucking into her placenta once again after giving birth to her son Saint West just over a week ago. But instead of munching on it in steak form (as some people do!), she has decided to have it freeze-dried and made into easily digestible pills.
But why, you might ask? Well, the star is convinced that this will ward of post-partum depression, a clinical condition that can affect the mother after giving birth. Taking to Twitter, the mom-of-two posted:
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has never shied away from speaking out about the weirder sides of pregnancy and has previously also openly spoken about eating her placenta after her daughter, North, came into the world. On her app the other day, she said:
"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. 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 totally recommend it for anyone considering it!"
Apparently, the first time it made her feel brilliant! She continued gushing about the positive effects of eating the circular organ that is responsible for nourishing and maintaining the baby during pregnancy:
"I had great results and felt so full of energy 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!"
Well, if it makes you feel good, then why not? If only all ladies could afford to have their placenta put into pill form...
Doctors advise against a third pregnancy
And amidst all this baby excitement, it has also been reported that Kim has been advised not to have any more children. This is due to the fact that she suffers from placenta accreta, a life-threatening condition that occurs when blood vessels grow too deeply into the wall of the uterus – after delivery, this can lead to very heavy blood loss.
Doctors have advised Kim that should she get pregnant again, there is "nearly a guarantee" that this would happen.
Yet considering Kimmy has also spoken out how much she detests the experience of pregnancy, it doesn't look that another baby Kimye is in the cards anyway!
I guess only time will tell.
