January Jones Ate Her Own Placenta

Jordan Strauss/WireImage(LONDON) -- Mad Men star January Jones gave birth to a baby boy last September, and is now urging all new mothers to do what she did to boost her energy after giving birth -- eat their placentas.

The Daily Mail reports Jones told People magazine the placenta is packed with vitamins. 

Jones says, “It was something I was very hesitant about, but we’re only the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.  It’s not witch-crafty or anything.  I suggest it to all moms.”

Jones returned to the Mad Men set about seven weeks after her son Xander was born.  She tells People magazine returning to the set “was tough with the long days but work made it really comfortable for me.”

The fifth season of Mad Men premiered Sunday night with a two-hour episode.´╗┐

Gilmore's comments caught the attention of Mad Men star John Slattery, who tells E! Online Jones' reputation for stand-offishness is perception only.

The source said, "If Jason were the dad, he'd step it up."  The insider also said Sudeikis was never really into starting a family, explaining, "She told him she wanted kids and it turned him off.  Jason was bummed out she was on the mommy track."

Jones, who revealed last week she's pregnant, hasn't disclosed the father's identity.  It's also unclear if her pregnancy will be written into any Mad Men story line.
