Posted: 2:33 pm Monday, February 26th, 2018
Khloe Kardashian is keeping the good ol’ Kardashian tradition alive! She’s following in her sisters footsteps by eating her placenta after birth. The reality star, who is pregnant with her first child, revealed this intention during a conversation with her sister Kim on Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” “I’m gonna eat it in pills,” Khloe, 33, said on the episode. Kim, 37, and Kourtney Kardashian, 38, have both been vocal about ingesting their placentas after having a child in the past. There is no conclusive scientific studies that say effects are guaranteed, but many women believe ingesting it can lead to a greater production of milk & a lower level of post- partum depression. Kim detailed her decision to take her placenta pills after giving birth to her second child, Saint, in 2015, writing in a post to her website at the time that she’d read testimonials from other women who believed it positively impacted their recovery. “I had great results and felt so energized and didn’t have any signs of depression,” Kim wrote in the post. Kourtney, meanwhile, described the placenta pills as “life changing” in a 2015 Instagram post.
