Girls' actress Gaby Hoffmann wants you to know she enjoyed eating placenta after the birth of her new baby, thank you very much.


Hoffmann, 32, and her boyfriend Chris Dapkins welcomed their daughter Rosemary into the world on Nov. 19. Then she feasted for weeks on the placenta. People got to the bottom of this placenta eating story. Thank you, People:

"Placenta, placenta, placenta. Just eat that s— up, and it does a girl good!" Hoffmann, who guest-stars as Adam's out-there sister in the hit series, told PEOPLE, noting it boosted her energy and milk supply...."You don't taste [it]," she explains.

"I made smoothies out of it for three weeks. I had a home birth, so my midwife and my doula took it and cut it up into 20 pieces and froze it, and every day, I put it in a blender with strawberries and blueberries and guava juice and a banana, and I drank that s— up."


Hmm, I wonder if that's something you could get off the secret Jamba Juice menu? I can't wait to go in there next time and ask them to whip me up a blueberry placenta milkshake.

Everyone, say it with me: Placenta, placenta, placenta!

My wife and I are trying to have a baby. I'll be carrying the little gremlin (we're lesbians YAY) and she is planning on breastfeeding (with me). There are some hippie herbs you can take to make the boob juice happen, apparently. Anyway, she tells me the other night that not only does she think I should eat the placenta in capsule form to ramp up milk production, but she would like to consider it too. Eating my placenta, that is. SHE WANTS TO EAT MY PLACENTA.

I looked at her and all I could think was, "Who the fuck did I marry?"
