Caution: smelling salts may be necessary while reading this post. Why? Because we're about to boldly go to uncharted territories — a land where Teen Mom stars eat their own placentas. Don't say we didn't warn you.
You see, Teen Mom 2's most gorgeous blonde bombshell Kailyn Lowry is currently pregnant with her second child, and apparently she's become slightly alternative. We're all about getting our hippie on (kale > Cheetos), but Kail is taking things to a new level. She wants to encapsulate her placenta, a plan which everyone in her life appears to be horrified by.
"Nobody is on board with me encapsulating my placenta," Kailyn tweeted on October 3.
In case you're unfamiliar with placenta encapsulation, allow us to break it down for you. Once a woman delivers her baby, she delivers the placenta, a giant red blob about the size of a newborn. The placenta is then dehydrated and placed into capsules for you to enjoy in the morning with your vitamins. We'll give you a moment to recover.
Now, before you assume that Kailyn has gone crazy from the pregnancy hormones, keep in mind that placenta encapsulation has some amazing health benefits. Chowing down on your placenta helps provide nutrients to your body, and helps women recover from childbirth. It's a win-win! Aside from the whole eating something that emerged from your lady parts thing.Do you think Kailyn should encapsulate her placenta? Weigh in below! On that note, time to go eat a snack that we didn't give birth to.
