Natasha Hamilton: ‘I’ll eat my placenta’

Pregnant Atomic Kitten singer Natasha Hamilton says eating afterbirth will be 'nourishing'


Natasha Hamilton has revealed she’ll be eating her placenta after she gives birth in September.


The Atomic Kitten singer is expecting a little girl with 5ive singer Ritchie Neville and they plan to call her Ella.

Now it seems the mum-of-3 is looking to follow actress January Jones’ example – by having her placenta made into ready-to-eat capsules.

“It just seemed right,” Natasha told the Sunday Mirror. “Instead of taking loads of different vitamins, I would be nourishing my body with my own placenta that’s been nourishing my baby. It’s like the circle of life.”

The 32-year-old has also backed the campaign to stop the proposed ban on placenta encapsulation (the process in which placenta is dried and ground into a powder and then made into capsules) by signing a petition to the EU food standards agency.

Natasha probably won’t have bandmate Kerry Katona’s backing, though.

“I can’t believe it, I’d never do that!” she said, when told Mad Men star January ate her placenta after giving birth. “How can my child benefit from me eating the placenta?”

What do you think? Would you eat your placenta – either raw or in capsules? Or not?
