Kim Kardashian just welcomed her second child, a boy Saint West, and in a bid to prevent postnatal depression has decided to eat her placenta, again.

“I’m having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form — not actually fry it like a steak and eat it (which some people do, BTW),” she shared in a new post on her website.

“So, I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta. I actually thought Kourtney would have soooo done this, but I don’t think she did. And when I say ‘eat my placenta,’ I mean that I’m having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form — not actually fry it like a steak and eat it (which some people do, BTW).”

“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 post-partum depression, but then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression! So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?” she said.

“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. I started researching and read about so many mums who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.”

“I had great results and felt so energised and didn’t have any signs of depression!” she gushed. “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!”

  • No I never have eaten my placenta. Not my thing but each to their own.


  • yes i have heard of this. very popular now for the celebs to do. app’ there are a lot of benefits but i couldn’t eat it.


  • I didn’t know it was possible to encapsulate your placenta.
    But is there really a relation between eating your placenta and post-partum depression?


  • Lie jf


  • Never heard of this before!!! I think the issue is way more complicated than this and has nothing to do with the placenta. Great support is probably more effective.
