Kim gave birth on December 5 to her and Kanye West's second child, a baby boy named Saint -- and news about Kim eating placenta pills might come as a shock to some of her fans.

Those who pay for exclusive access to Kim Kardashian's website (hey, at least you get seven days free, right?) can read all about her "Eating My Placenta" blog post -- including her reasons for doing so, and why she thinks it's important. In fact, Kim hopes eating her own organ will yield wonderful benefits -- like reducing the risk of postpartum depression, and making the recovery process much easier.

Kim isn't the first Kardashian to eat her placenta. Kourtney Kardashian has been taking placenta pills throughout her pregnancies, and swears by them.

As a mom of two 16 months apart (my youngest is 6 months), I thought about the whole placenta thing, but was turned off after I pushed it out ... and saw it up close.

I just hope Kim read about research published over the summer that claims there's no scientific evidence that supports benefits to eating your placenta.

Do what you think is best, mama.
