January Jones has revealed she’s been eating her placenta. The Mad Men star – who gave birth to Xander last September – says it’s something she recommends.
She says, “I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation. 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.”
The 34-year-old actress adds, “It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”
January is also grateful that she gets to have her son close to her on the set everyday.
I think I went back to set six or seven weeks after, so he was really little. I had the baby and the baby nurse in their own room so I could go back and feed him every two hours. If I felt like he needed me, or if he needed to eat, or even if I just needed a squeeze because I was having separation issues, I would go back and see him. It was such a blessing that I wasn’t separated from him.”
