Some experts tell us the practice has no benefits at all (and may even pose a risk) but that hasn’t stopped lots of mums – including a bunch of famous ones – encapsulating their placentas and popping the resulting pills postpartum.

Or perhaps going one step further and just popping their frozen placenta chunks in the blender with some random fruit! Gulp. #TrueStory

"Last day of placenta pills," the Twilight actor posted on Instagram. "Not ready to say goodbye!!!!!"
