January Jones is Eating Her Own Placenta

Take the grossest thing you can think of, the hottest celebrity mom right now, combine them, and you get today’s headline.

And I thought the Kim Kardashian flour bomb incident was the weirdest thing to happen today. “Mad Men” actress January Jones just told People magazine that she’s eating her own placenta.

So gross it’s true, Jones gave birth to son Xander last September and says she’s eating a capsule form of the placenta, because apparently that makes it more normal?

“I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.”

Doulas? Placenta capsules? This sounds like witch-craft to me.

“It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!” says Jones.

Oh ok, so it’s not witch-crafty, glad we cleared that up.

“Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas,” says the actress.

I don’t know what’s more surprising, eating placentas or the fact that January Jones said all those words together, in that order.

Anyways, even though Jones is raising her son on her own, she says that the cast and crew of Mad Men let her bring her son to set.

“I think I went back to set six or seven weeks after, so he was really little. I had the baby and the baby nurse in their own room, so I could go back and feed him every two hours.”
