Kooky actress January Jones got tongues wagging last year when she bragged that she’d actually consumed her baby’s placenta. When she gave birth to 17-month-old son Xander, she ate it- and now claims that eating the organ via vitamin capsules helped her prevent post-natal depression.
In a new interview with ‘Glamour‘ magazine, she explains her weird decision: “I should never have told anyone about that. But it’s not gross or witchcrafty. Nor am I putting it in a shake or eating it raw. It’s a very civilised thing that can help women with depression or fatigue. I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I’d highly suggest it to any pregnant woman.”
