'I'm having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form'

Following the birth of her son, Saint West, Kim Kardashian has announced her plans to consume the afterbirth. She might even be ingesting it right now.

Eonline reported the news, which Kim revealled in a blog post this week: 'I'm having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form - not actually fry it like a steak and eat it (which some people do, BTW).'

Why has Kim decided to eat an organ that grew in her uterus to nourish her new baby? Because she believes it staves off post natal depression:

'I really didn't want the baby blues and thought, 'I can't go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones - made by me, for me'. I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.'

So far Kim reports positive results:

'Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good. I totally recommend it for anyone considering it!'

Other celebrity mothers who have eaten their placenta include Kim's sister Kourtney Kardashain, Mad Men star January Jones and Alicia Silverstone.
