Well, apparently this is a thing, and this consumption will not be her first!
The 35-year-old mother-of-two opened up on her app about the placenta-eating process and why she decided to do it.
“So, I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta. I actually thought Kourtney would have soooo done this, but I don’t think she did,” Kim wrote, although Kourtney Kardashian did decide toconsume her placenta as well. “And when I say ‘eat my placenta,’ I mean that 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).”
But this won’t be the first time she’s consumed her own placenta. Kim did the same thing after giving birth to North West in order to help prevent any postpartum depression.
“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,” she explained. “But then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression! So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?
She continues, “I really didn’t want the baby blues and thought I can’t go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones—made by me, for me. I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.”
