New Mom Gaby Hoffmann Made Smoothies Out Of Her Placenta, Yum!
“Placenta, placenta, placenta. Just eat that s–t up, and it does a girl good. … I made smoothies out of it for three weeks. I had a home birth, so my midwife and my doula took it and cut it up into 20 pieces and froze it, and every day, I put it in a blender with strawberries and blueberries and guava juice and a banana, and I drank that shit up.”
Mmm, placenta! It’s what’s for breakfast! “Girls” and “Transparent” actress Gaby Hoffmann welcomed her first child, Rosemary, in November, endorsed the benefits of ingesting the nutrient-rich afterbirth in an interview with People, saying that it boosted her energy levels and milk production. I love Gaby Hoffmann, and drinking a placenta smoothie is perhaps the most Gaby Hoffmann thing of all — I’m frankly surprised she doesn’t drink them all the time. I’ve got a little hippie in me too, so I could totally get behind popping a few placenta pills, but smoothies are taking it just a litttttttttttttle too far for me. Sorry, Gaby, but I just refuse to believe you when you say “you don’t taste it.” But do you, girl! [People] [Photos: Getty Images/Midwife4Him]
