Yummy: ‘Mad Men’ Star Eats Her Own Placenta

Posted by on Mar 26, 2012 at 11:28 am

A nice little lunchtime note.

To each her own.

January Jones returned to set just seven weeks after giving birth to baby boy Xander, and the “Mad Men” star came up with an unusual way to keep her energy levels high: by eating her own placenta.

The actress, 34, told People magazine that returning to work was “tough” in the beginning, especially when Xander was still “really little,” but falling back into routine has helped.

Jones explained that her doula — otherwise known as a labor coach — prescribed her a remedy to help her get through the long hours.

“I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation,” she told the magazine, explaining that the process involves the placenta getting “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,” she insisted. “It’s not witchcrafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”

I guess I’d be creeped out if she was eating someone else’s placenta.

    Call me crazy but there are several things that mammals do that human beings don’t do. And that’s OK.

    Hollywood. /facepalm
