Holly Madison Planning to Eat her Placenta after Giving Birth
Holly Madison is planning to eat her placenta after giving birth. The "Girls Next Door" star revealed her intention through her blog.
"This might sound gross, but I'm totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth," the expecting blonde beauty wrote after posting a photo showing a jar full of placenta pills. "I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!"
Madison wanted to have kids for a long time and was planning to adopt a baby when she got pregnant. This is the first child for the 33-year-old blonde beauty and boyfriend Pasquale Rotella. The baby girl is due in March.
The heavily pregnant playboy model, while updating her pregnancy experiences on Twitter, revealed her preparations for her little angel.
"Yup, still decorating and painting at 9 months pregnant!" Madison wrote Feb. 27, while designing her fairy tale-based nursery.
Madison, who started modeling during college days, shot to fame after she appeared as one of the girlfriends of Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner in the TV series "The Girls Next Door". Madison split with Hefner in 2008.
Similar to Madison, last year January Jones caught headlines for turning her placenta into pills and taking it after giving birth to son Xander in September 2011. But the 35-year-old actress, who had to face criticism for her decision, still defends her action as she actually benefited out of it.
"It's a very civilized thing that can help women with depression or fatigue," Yahoo quoted Jones, a single mom, telling Glamour magazine. "I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I'd highly suggest it to any pregnant woman."
