  • Mom Blends Placenta Into Smoothie (REAL)

A English mom has found new purpose for her placenta by blending it up in a smoothie. Jay Woodall always wanted to repurpose her placenta and finally figured out what to do with it by her third child. She paid $42 for her placenta to be blended with coconut water and berries and an additional $210 for it to be dehydrated and turned into pills. What may be even more interesting is that she served her blended concoction to her husband Jon and middle son Demitrius for its health benefits. “It just tasted like a berry smoothie. It had coconut water and berries in it so tasted really nice,” says Woodal. “I had a boost of energy, better deeper sleep, and my mood was boosted – I felt really good. Milk production was good too, I had to take less because I was producing too much milk.” She went on to explain how her husband tried it out of curiosity and her son thought it was yummy. Woodall also had her umbilical cord dehydrated and turned into a trinket. Of eating the placenta, Woodall says, “It’s a highly beneficial thing to do, I know mothers that have suffered from postnatal depression and I think it would help that, in my opinion.” The self-proclaimed hippy believes she now has a stronger bond with her newborn. “I was a bit more connected and bonded to my baby, I was able to have a very deep sleep after having it, so it just outweighs the negatives.”
