Kailyn Lowry reveals she's been taking placenta pills to provide nutrients to her infant son, Lincoln. 

Kailyn Lowry will do practically anything for her newborn son Lincoln Marshall Marroquin, and she wants her many followers to know it. The Teen Mom 2 star took to Instagram on Nov. 22 to post a picture of her encapsulated placenta pills, which she's taking as nutrients for herself and for her baby boy. 

The reality mom received lots of flack from fans who thought the practice was unsavory, but many medical professionals support the decision, because there are no man-made supplements that can provide the same natural nutrients as placenta.

"For those wondering, I'm feeling pretty good so far taking my placenta pills," Lowry, 21, tweeted on Nov. 23. "No negative side effects!"

Other celebs have admitted to the practice of eating their own placenta including Holly Madison and January Jones

After giving birth to son Isaac Rivera, now 3, on season 2 of MTV's 16 and Pregnant with then-boyfriend Jo Rivera, Lowry went on to the spin-off show Teen Mom 2. She broke up with Rivera and started a relationship with Javi Marroquin

The couple married in a simple courthouse ceremony in September 2012 followed by a big bash in September 2013 with friends and family. Little Lincoln is their first child together.
