In the episode on Sunday of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” season 8 premiere, Kim revealed that she was having a baby girl, but also shocked viewers when she told her doctor that she is considering eating her own placenta in a bid to make her ‘look younger’.
Kim Kardashian is all about keeping up with the trends and has taken many liberties in the name of staying young and beautiful.
From acupuncture needles in her face to a vampire facial, this time the 32-year-old reality star said she’s interested in eating her placenta.
“Don’t you think it makes you look younger? I really want to do it.” she asked her doctor
Kim would not be the first celebrity mother to eat her placenta for its nutritious benefits. Following stars like January Jones and Holly Madison, who also ate their placenta, Kardashian wants in on the after-birth practice that’s becoming increasingly more common.
After the birth of her son Xander, January Jones widely spoke about how she had eaten hers, although she was unsure at first.
The actress told People Magazine: ‘It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re only the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas. It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!’
As well as reportedly helping you ‘appear youthful’, Chinese herbalists among others believe that re-ingesting the protective layer that connects the baby to the wall of the uterus is a great way to nourish the body following childbirth.
