(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.
