The “Mad Men” star and new mommy, January Jones, has a secret to keeping high energy levels while balancing work and motherhood. Seven weeks after giving birth to baby Xander, Jones returned to work and recommends her new found energy booster to all mothers. What is her secret?—you might ask.
“I have a great doula [labor coach] who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation,” exclaimed Jones. The process involves the placenta getting “dehydrated and made into vitamins.”
Mothers and mothers-to-be might be hesitant of such an unusual methodology of consuming their own placenta: “It’s something I was very hesitant about,” said Jones. “But we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas. It’s not witchcrafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”
