Kim Kardashian Eats Her Own Placenta To Avoid Postpartum Depression

in Entertainment/Latest

Kim Kardashian is all about eating her own placenta if it helps stave off getting “the baby blues.”

In a new post on the 35-year-old reality star’s app, Kim shares that she’s having her placenta freeze-dried and made into a pill form. Kim gave birth to her son with husband Kanye West, Saint West, on Dec. 5.

“I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of mums who never ate their placenta with their first baby and then had postpartum depression, but then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression!” Kim explains.

“So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?”

“I really didn’t want the baby blues and thought I can’t go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones — made by me, for me,” she adds.

Kim says that she could not have been happier with the results when she first ate her placenta after giving birth to her now 2-year-old daughter, North West, in June 2013.

“I had great results and felt so energized and didn’t have any signs of depression!” Kim writes. “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!”

This, of course, isn’t the first time Kim has talked about eating her own placenta. In an August 2013 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she mulled over the idea during a family dinner, while she was still pregnant with North.

“This is such a beautiful dinner, I just lost my appetite. … That is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard,” her mother, Kris Jenner, cracked.

While the rest of her family members think the idea is ridiculous, at least one of them believed in the practice.

“I think everyone is just being really weird and close-minded. Except for Kourtney, she gets it,” Kim said at the time.
