January Jones Eats Her Own Placenta

During a press junket, January Jones said fans always joke about her character Betty’s standoffish parenting skills but say they don’t think she’s thatĀ kindĀ of mom in real life. “What’s nice is that the expectations for my parenting is very low, so I can really only exceed the expectations.”

Having said that, only recently have we seen Jones holding her own baby. Sure, that may be because she values her privacy and doesn’t see the point in parading her kid around like an accessory but I’d like to think it’s more because her way of raising kids is in line with how I would raise one. Pretend they don’t exist.

Regardless, Jones says about raising a fussy, screaming baby, “It was hard to work long days and then go home and not sleep. It’s getting harder, not easier, so I’m a little concerned!”

So how does she deal with this since she can’t just drop that kid off on someone’s doorstep like normal moms? She eats her own placenta insisting it’s not “witch-crafty or anything!” “I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.”

You may be wondering: that sounds delicious, tell me more. “Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins,” she explains. “It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.” We’re also the only animals who wear clothes but you don’t see me running around naked. Unless I finally break into Jessica Alba’s house.

That said, if Jones insists on doing this, she should talk to Tom Cruise. I hear he knows a recipe for a killer Lemon Placenta Gnocchi.
