Los Angeles: Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is having her placenta freeze-dried and made into pills as she believes it will ward off postpartum depression following the birth of her second child.
The reality star, who just welcomed her second child, son Saint, with husband Kanye West, shared that she’s having her placenta made into pills.
“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),” she shared in a new post on her website, reports people.com.
Kim said she heard stories during her pregnancy with daughter North, of other mothers who steered clear of placenta encapsulation and then suffered postpartum depression with their first child.
However, those mothers, she said, didn’t have depression when they took the pills with baby number two.
After finding success with her own postpartum hormones following her first pregnancy, the reality star said she wanted to replicate the feeling.
“I had great results and felt so energized and didn’t have any signs of depression,” she explained in the post. “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!,” she said.
