New mum and former America's Next Top Model contestant Lisa D'Amato posted a photo of her friends enjoying a smoothie that she claimed was made from her placenta at a 'Placenta smoothie party'.
Many believe that for humans,digesting the placenta can aid recovery after birth. There are services where you can arrange for your placenta to be turned into pills which you can then take - some believe it enhances milk supply, helps with hormonal imbalances, reduces depression and much more.
If there was significant scientific evidence that it was that good for you I might of considered having it made into tablets to take but definitely not a smoothie...The thought of it makes me feel sick!!
I definitely wouldn't drink someone else's placenta!!....I love my friends but if they held a 'Placenta smoothie party'....No!! just no!! I'm not about to knock back something that just came out of their vag. (Gross, yes -- but that's the reality of what they're doing.)
I'm really hoping it doesn't become some sort of new trend otherwise it might be difficult to ever look at a smoothie the same way again.....(Gag.)
I am not judging anyone who has done this.....I just wouldn't personally choose to do it myself!
