Gaby Hoffman’s nutty childbirth fad trifecta: “Doula,” home first birth AND placenta-eating

January 9, 2015

At least she didn’t do a “dolphin birth”:

Gaby Hoffmann Welcomes Daughter Rosemary
Hoffman: I love me some crazy childbirth fads

“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.

The actress, 32,  and longtime boyfriend, cinematographer Chris Dapkins, welcomed daughter Rosemary on Nov. 19 at home and says getting those nutrients from the birth organ was easy. “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.”

Who said it’s just a “stereotype” that childbirth and crazy go together?
