Coleen Rooney has revealed that eating her own placenta helped her feel more energised after the birth of her third son Kit in January.
The wife of Wayne Rooney swallowed her after-birth in the form of a capsule that contained her very own freeze-dried placenta.
Coleen 30, says that doing so boosted her energy levels and made her feel very 'positive' post natal.
Coleen, who gave birth to the couple’s 3rd child in January, had her afterbirth freeze-dried and converted in to capsules, said the pills have been very beneficial to her health.
“They had a slightly metallic taste and they definitely made me feel energised. I felt full of very positive energy and it helped with a number of pregnancy symptoms such as the produce of milk,” she said in an interview with The Daily Mirror.
“I slept really well and they helped to stabilise my weight after having Kit. Everyone has a different reaction but in my case they were great. There are so many ways to do it now so research what’s best for you. I’m almost back to what I was before I had Kit but I do have a bit of a jelly belly. But there’s only so much you can do.
“I’ve got a certain body shape. I’m curvy and if I eat and drink lots I put on a lot of weight so we eat healthily. I’ll never be stick thin – that’s not my frame. And I’m short – I’ve only got little legs. But that’s me. And I felt good. It didn’t bother me putting a bikini on.”
