Hilary Duff revealed she drank a placenta smoothie after welcoming her second child, Banks Violet Bair, last month and did something quite unusual with the leftovers.

In an interview with US podcast Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy, the actress revealed: “I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was like 10-years-old.”

According to the mum-of-two, it was calorie-packed made with “juice and fruit and everything delicious.”

She has since made the leftover placenta into ice cubes that she can have as “treats” in other smoothies she makes.

Yet despite her enthusiasm, she admits she didn’t wish to have it made into tablets.

“I heard something weird about pills,” she added. “I heard placenta burps are not ideal.”

  • It sounds as gory as diluting your own blood and mixing it with milk would be. Yuck !!!


  • Just sounds so disgusting. Not something I wanted to do. Not even sure I could do it if the dr recommended it


  • Each to their own.


  • Truly bizaare. I feel sick thinking about it.


  • Definitely not my kind of thing , I can not do that.Yuck


  • If I were to do anything with my placenta, it would be to bury it and plant a tree. Wouldn’t even consider consuming it.


  • Oh dear. I’m glad I don’t go to her house and be offered a drink.


  • Different. But a celebrity doing this brings exposure to the benefits of it.


  • I’m sorry but I couldn’t think of doing something like this. Definitely not my cup of tea so to speak


  • I honestly couldn’t think of anything worse – a big fat no from me I am afraid but I don’t judge what she did at all – I have heard lots of mum’s doing it and I always say each to their own


  • Sorry. there’s a little bit of sick in my mouth right now just at the thought of this.


  • Each to there own, no judgment good on you for doing what you believe in. Just hope that was all worth it ☺️


  • Just the thought of it makes me sick


  • Do think I’ll pass on this delicacy. Don’t know what the hospitals did in the old days – one never thought or talked about it.


  • I know animals do it and it’s full of nutrients but I really cannot even stomach the thought of eating it. I cast no judgement on those that do consume the placenta, I hope it gives your baby a great head start.
