Kourtney Kardashian is not only celebrating the arrival of her third child, but also her newest addition to her daily routine: taking placenta pills.
Yes, you read that right. Kourtney Kardashian is not only going to be ingesting her own placenta now that she’s given birth to her third child, Reign Aston Disick, but she has also taken to social media to express her excitement.
“Yummy… PLACENTA pills! No joke… I will be sad when my placenta pills run out. They are life changing! #benefits #lookitup,” the Kardashian captioned the photo.
This isn’t the first time a Kardashian has brought up eating a placenta. In fact, according to Mirror, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian both stated in 2013 that they would be happy to eat each other’s placenta!
“Why would you not take it?” said Kourtney. “I want to have a third child just to eat the placenta.”
While some reported benefits of a mother eating her placenta, include helping with post-natal depression, alleviating mood, pain and also increasing energy levels, that doesn’t mean everyone agrees with the practice. Just check out what some of the Twitter world had to say about Kourtney eating her placenta.
