Mmm . . . placenta pills. Kim Kardashian revealed in a new blog post on Monday, December 14, that she is eating her placenta after giving birth to her second child, Saint West, and she even shared a photo of her supplements on her website.
"So, I'm really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta," the mom of two, 35, wrote in her post titled "Eating My Placenta."
"I actually thought Kourtney would have soooo done this, but I don't think she did," she continued. (Kourtney, however, did consume placenta pills.)
"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)." (Indeed, Kim and Kourtney pretended to feed their family fried human placenta on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians back in 2013.)
Kim decided to give the method another go after giving birth to her son, Saint, on December 5. "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!" she continued. "So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?"
The reality star is consuming said placenta in the form of dark purple pills. "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," she wrote. "I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier."

According to the reality star, the pills are working again. "I had great results and felt so energized and didn't have any signs of depression!" she gushed on her site. "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!” (Other celeb moms who have consumed their placentas include January Jones, Kim Zolciak and Holly Madison.)
This will probably be Kim's final time consuming placenta pills. Us Weekly reported on Monday, December 14, that Saint is most likely Kim and Kanye West's last child.
"It's unlikely she'll ever carry another baby," a source previously told Us. The same source also shared that if the couple wanted to have another baby, it would most likely be via a surrogate.
