Jennica Garcia ingests baby’s placenta


 

Jennica Garcia took to Instagram to share her experience after giving birth to her second child. Jennica said that she and her husband, actor Alwyn Uytingco drank a smoothie with their baby’s placenta.

Although this seems odd to other people, according to medical website Webmd.com, “People who support eating the placenta say that it can raise your energy and breast milk quantity. They also say it can level off your hormones, lowering your chances of postpartum depression and insomnia.”

Blended with it, is a small piece of my daughter's own placenta. To my surprise, my husband, drank two sips from my smoothie before handing it over to me! Kaya siguro mahal na mahal ko ang asawa ko. Alam kong naiintindihan at suportado niya ako, gaano man ka-iba ang nais kong tahakin na landas. While most would probably take the smoothie in one go, being worried that there might actually be a foul taste or smell from the placenta, I took a sweet time drinking mine and enjoyed every moment of it. We even kept a few more pieces in the freezer to be able to make more for later. Cheers!” she wrote.

 

I am so excited to share the Birth Story of our second child with you, but for now, I hope this will do.... Meet our little angel and her sister placenta. They are on their third day together now. 💫 #FullLotusBirth In the next photo, thanks to @irina_doula, you will see a lovingly prepared fruit smoothie.
