 Great Plans in Place for Pregnant Holly Madison

Pregnant Holly Madison, expecting her first child, has come out with her rather unique plans of wanting to eat her placenta in a bid to recover faster from childbirth.

Nearing her delivery date, she has said that she wants to save her placenta so that it can be made into pills that she can take to help her recover faster from the birth and drive postpartum blues away.

In her blog, she revealed her plans saying, 'This might sound gross, but I'm totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth.I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can! Have any other moms out there done this?'

Her expected date of delivery is March 8th and if she goes with her plans she will join other celebrity moms in re-ingesting her placenta for its nutritional advantage.

It is a belief that re-ingesting the protective layer which links the baby to the wall of the uterus is a fantastic method to give the body vital nutrients. Further, the placenta contains high levels of oxytocin, and as hormone levels drop after giving birth, it is thought to be a natural way to replenish the levels. This can help keep the new mom emotionally and physically healthy.
