Holly Madison Plans to Eat Her Placenta After Giving Birth

"This might sound gross, but I'm totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth," the former Playboy model and "Girls Next Door" star wrote on her blog. "I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!"
Hugh Hefner's ex isn't the only one to jump on this strange yet increasingly popular trend. January Jones revealed last year that she had opted to consume her placenta in pill format after giving birth to son Xander. And she had nothing but positive things to say about the experience.
"It's a very civilized thing that can help women with depression or fatigue," Jones said. "I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I'd highly suggest it to any pregnant woman."
Placenta capsulation is not FDA-approved and despite its nutritional value, it hasn't been scientifically proven to help any ailments.
It may be a natural, some people swear it has benefits. But this is something I would NEVER EVER do. What about you? Would you eat your own placenta?
