The placenta forms even before your baby does, it plays a huge role in your pregnancy as it delivers nutrients, oxygen and hormones to your baby whilst also working as a filter to ensure all waste products via the umbilical cord. When your baby is born, it’s usually a case of being so distracted by them that you’re not thinking about anything else. However, there are some celebrity moms who have conserved their placenta to consume at a later time.
Hilary and her husband Matthew Koma introduced their daughter, Banks Violent in 2018. It was an all natural and drug-free water birth. Hilary revealed at a later date that she drank her placenta and described it as like drinking a smoothie.

Tia said, “If you think about it too much, you’re not going to like it, because all you’re going to think about is that you’re consuming placenta. But I was surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol.”
“It’s not as gross as it sounds,” she said in an interview. “I just took two placenta pills in the morning with my coffee.” She followed with a joke, “No, I didn’t sauté it with onions and have a glass of Chianti.”

Kim Kardashian decided to encapsulate her placenta after the birth of her second child. She did this in order to avoid postpartum depression. Kim explained, “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). 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!”
“I made smoothies out of it for three weeks. I had a home birth, so my midwife and my doula took it and cut it up into 20 pieces and froze it, and every day, I put it in a blender with strawberries and blueberries and guava juice and a banana.”
“Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.” Whether considered mad mom or perfectly sane, consuming your placenta still remains a controversial topic.

You can try some of mine after.”

“I ingested my placenta,” she wrote. “I am not a bad person, a crazy person, or a freak, and neither is Alicia Silverstone or January Jones. There is no evolutionary benefit to us being created with a placenta that is not perfectly healthy and wonderful to ingest. It is. Yum!”
