Well, it turns out Kim has opted to turn her A-list placenta into pills that she can consume. She explained on her website: 'I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of moms who never ate their placenta with their first baby and then had postpartum depression, but then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression!' 

Kim believes the post-pregancy healing process can be made a lot easier by consuming her own encapsulated placenta.

The doula, Joni Lucarelli charged Kim $275 for the process. The Placenta Question is divisive at the best of times so, of course Kim is on the frontline of the debate, and she seems to have found a middle ground between the 'ick' factor and the medical benefits.
