Would you eat your own placenta?
Does the thought of eating afterbirth turn your stomach? Mad Men actress January Jones disagrees.

You may think that celebrities have natural energy and vigour when returning to work after having a baby. January Jones, however, has her own way of getting back on the proverbial horse.

According to E!online, January has a doula that's making sure she eats right, takes vitamins, drinks tea and pops a placenta capsule when she's feeling lethargic.

That's disgusting, right? Or is it? The internet is filled with people who eat the placenta raw, cook it up in a placenta lasagne or even dry it out and turn it into a powder.

January Jones was not necessarily on board right off the bat. "It's something I was very hesitant about, but we're the only mammals who don't ingest our own placentas." Personally, I'd say there's a good reason for that. But maybe that's just me.

The now pro-placenta mom added, "It's not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!" Or you could just make a placenta teddy out of it...
