Kim Kardashian Explains Why She's Eating Her Placenta

Pin It
Kim Kardashian just gave birth to her son Saint, and the reality star has chosen to eat her placenta, which is actually not all that uncommon.

In a new blog post on her website and app, appropriately entitled "Eating My Placenta," Kim explained why she decided to do it and that it isn't exactly what it sounds like. By "eating" her placenta, she actually means having it freeze-dried into pill form, that looks like this:

"I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of moms 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!" she explained. "So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?"

She also said that she thinks it's something Kourtney would have done and that she doesn't think Kourt did it, but we remember Kourtney posting this pic after she gave birth to baby Reign:

Yummy...PLACENTA pills! No joke...I will be sad when my placenta pills run out. They are life changing! #benefits #lookitup

This is probably the last chance Kim will ever have to do this, also, because TMZ is reporting that due to issues with her placenta during her two pregnancies, doctors have told her it would be dangerous for her to carry another child.
