So how did January Jones get back to work on the hit series Mad Men so quickly after giving birth? If you ask her she credits eating her own placenta and oh yeah a healthy diet along with vitamins. Mostly the placenta however.
She recently told People magazine “Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.”
“It’s not witch-crafty or anything,” said Jones, who plays Betty on the TV show. “I suggest it to all moms.”
In America well it’s considered well an insane thing to do but in other cultures it’s actually rather common to consume one’s afterbirth. Research has actually shown that the afterbirth is indeed a nutrient-packed pouch, and it has been touted as a way to prevent post-partum depression and promote a fast recovery after pregnancy.
Still I for one think maybe this is well.. Nuts for the lack of a better term. Perhaps January Jones is starting to become a lot more like Tom Cruise or perhaps she was just hungry and was like what the heck it’s here anyway… I sure hope this isn’t a new celebrity trend but deep down I can just see TMZ hocking a celebrity placenta consumption video.
Now off to other matters. Who wants a snack?
