January_JonesIf you’re a celebrity with child looking to bring some media coverage and holistic health benefits then there is no easier way than ingesting a bit of your own placenta. But these aren’t the truly granola stars who make a Frappuccino out of their appendage, they have someone prepare the bits into pill form for easy ingestion and no aftertaste. Weaksauce. Today’s news brings us two groundbreaking icons of the entertainment world who pop the ‘P’ pills and aren’t afraid to talk about it.

First up is Holly Madison, former girlfriend of riverboat captain Hugh Hefner, reality television star and playmate decided the best way to attract attention get answers was to ask how if anyone else had experience with placenta pills on her blog in a “Wellness Wednesday” post.

This might sound gross, but I’m totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth. I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!

Have any other moms out there done this?


Maybe Holly was too afraid of the pictures that would show up if she were to Google around on the subject? She always was the prissy one of the Girls Next Door.

Not to be outdone by a has been reality TV star, January Jones wanted it known that she was into eating her placenta in pill form before it was cool. She got into the placenta encapsulation movement last year based on advice from her doula (not a medical practitioner or even a licensed midwife).

I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.

See, totally just part of her normal schedule. But when she made the statement last year it naturally caused quite a stir. To clarify the science of it all she added in People Magazine,

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.

It’s just science. She didn’t have any depression therefore the ground up and dried placenta bits in pill form are the cure.

Ms. Jones is not a scientist but the idea of causation and correlation should still be within her grasp.

If you see January ask her about it. But don’t let her have drinks alone with your husband or boyfriend.
