Placenta eating may be controversial with doctors, but many celebrity moms have been all over the trend, from Kailyn Lowry to Alicia Silverstone.
“Someone gifted me my placenta in the form of a pill,” the Clueless star wrote in her Kind Mama book, which was published in April 2014. “They encapsulate it. And I have to tell you that I really loved it.”
The actress went on to write, “It’s cool if others disagree. Everything that’s in the book is there to show you why you might want to consider it but never to say you have to choose it, always just to give you information and show you that if you don’t choose that, that’s totally fine.”
The Golden Globe nominee gave birth to son Bear three years prior with her then-husband, Christopher Jarecki. The former couple split in February 2018 and continue to coparent amicably.
In fact, Silverstone wouldn’t mind asking the singer for help conceiving another child, she told Working Mother magazine seven months after their breakup.
“I have always dreamed of having a little girl, but of course I want another little Bear too,” The Baby-Sitters Club star added in September 2018. “So whatever happens, if it happens, is good by me. I’m not in a relationship, but there are other ways to make babies.”
As for Lowry, the Teen Mom 2 star consumed her placenta after two of her four sons’ arrivals. The MTV personality ate it in pill form in 2013, then as a smoothie in 2020.
“Blended with fresh fruit & almond milk,” the 16 and Pregnant alum wrote via Instagram Stories of the latter. “Couldn’t taste the placenta at all!”
Hilary Duff was also a fan of the smoothie option when her daughter Banks was born in October 2018. The How I Met Your Father star additionally chose to ingest her placenta drink in the form of ice cubes at the time.
Twilight’s Nikki Reed opted for pills the previous year when she welcomed her and Ian Somerhalder’s baby girl, Bodhi. In May 2021, Challenge alum Abram Boise’s then-wife, Rachel Missie, ate hers fried on an egg sandwich in May 2021.
