Actress and singer Hilary Duff chose an all-natural and drug-free delivery for the October 25 birth of her second child, daughter Banks Violet Bair, in a birthing tub at her Los Angeles home with only a doula and midwifes present. Now, she has revealed that she has taken another rather unusual step; she took her after-birth placenta and turned it into a delicious drink.
According to E! News, the Younger star explained on a new episode of Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy podcast, released on Thursday, November 8, that she mixed part of the placenta with berries, fruit juice, and “everything delicious” to concoct a unique beverage.
“I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was, like, 10 years old,” gushed Duff.
As for the remainder of the placenta, the 31-year-old froze it in ice cube form and planned to add it to future smoothies that she will consume.
