January Jones Still Wants to Talk about Eating the Placenta
January Jones revealed last month that she ate her own placenta following the birth of her son Xander in January, and here it is two months later, and she’s still talking about eating the afterbirth. She tells the April issue of Glamour:
When she needs some extra energy, January takes some pills made with her own dried placenta, at the suggestion of her doula.
“Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins,” says Jones. “We’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas. It’s not witch-crafty or anything. … I suggest it to all moms.”
Just because other mammals do it doesn’t mean we should do it, too. Mammals sometimes eat their own offspring. Or excrement. I don’t plan on doing either of those things, either.
