Pregnancy is hard by itself, but, baby blues and postpartum makes it worse. Apparently, the practice of Placentophagy helps the mothers get better. You'll be surprised to hear the stories of these Hollywood celebrity mothers who ate their own placenta!
Before you get grossed out, let us tell you how exactly it works. So, when a baby is born, the placenta that's discharged through the body is preserved. Sometimes, along with the umbilical cord. It's mostly preserved through dry freezing.
Later, it cold be cut into pieces and had directly or ground with smoothies and similar beverages. Most of the times, its dried, baked, then ground to fine powder. The powder is later had in the form of pills, which is believed to do miracles.
It could sound very disgusting as never have we humans for all these years eaten placenta after birthing the baby, which is common among the other non-human mammals. But, through these famous mothers, more and more people are practicing Placentophagy.

The twin actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry, tasted placenta together, too. When Tia have birth, she preserved her placenta. While serving her twin Tamera drinks, she popped a piece of it in her glass. Supposedly, both the sisters enjoyed their drinks all the way till the residue.
