Kim Kardashian Has Turned Her Placenta Into (Personalised) Pills

Kim Kardashian Has Turned Her Placenta Into (Personalised) Pills

We wouldn't put anything past the Kardashian-West clan - they're a family who create entire walls of flowers and have published books made up of their own selfies, so it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that Kim Kardashian has very publically annouced that she's eaten her own placenta, in the most extravagent of ways.

Sadly, there was no party for the occasion - instead she had the nutrient-rich organ turned into pills. They were even personalised with her name.

While Kim didn't do the same after North's birth, she explained via her personal site, “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!”

Apparently, she discovered that “so many moms” felt “the overall healing process was so much easier,” and then made the decision to have her placenta transformed into nourishing capsules.

A doula named Joni Lucarelli created the pills for Kim, at the cost of $275.

Joni explains that results are “not a sure bet,” but that they can give new mums a sense of well-being. She adds - helpfully - that you can freeze the pills and keep them for “days of PMS or menopause."

Kim is clearly feeling the benefits, as she wrote: “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!”

Placenta aside, here's every beauty product the Kardashians have endorsed...
