January Jones Ate Her Own Placenta On Mad Men Set

|

We were kind of wondering why the producers of Mad Men are on their third Bobby Draper. But now we finally have a, err, “taste” of what these kids had to deal with. Apparently their TV mom January Jones ate her own placenta as an extra special energy boost on set! We’re not trying to be insensitive, but it’s gotta be pretty hard for a kid to get into the scene with that going on nearby.

The actress reportedly had a hard time returning to work only a few weeks after giving birth to her son, Xander. So her doula (or labor coach) came to the rescue by prescribing an unusual remedy. “I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation,” January told People magazine. “It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas. It’s not witchcrafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms.” Check out the gallery below for more strange celebrity tips for staying youthful, energetic and beautiful! Spoiler alert: there’s more placenta.
