'Teen Mom' Star Kailyn Lowry Plans To Eat Her Placenta, She Shares On Twitter
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Umm, did someone say TMI? "Teen Mom 2" star Kailyn Lowry is pregnant with her second child who's due next month, and she took to Twitter this week to share her after-birth plans. Just paid for my placenta to be encapsulated! — Kailyn Lowry (@KailLowry) October 17, 2013 The 21-year-old has a son, Isaac, born January 2010, notes Us Weekly. She is now pregnant with husband Javi Marroquin's child (Isaac's father is Jo Rivera). Earlier this week, the proud father-to-be posted an ultrasound photo to his Instagram account: Although still somewhat controversial, Lowry is hardly the first celebrity to open up about the practice, known for preventing or reducing negative aspects of childbirth, such as postpartum depression, "baby blues," fatigue, lactational insufficiency and hormone deficiencies. Kim Kardashian, January Jones and Holly Madison have famously talked about eating their placentas in pill form after delivery. MTV notes that the encapsulation cost Lowry $200.

However, during an interview at the Playmate of the Year luncheon in May 2008, Hefner stated, "I love Holly very much and I think we're going to be together the rest of my life, but marriage isn't part of my puzzle.
