rob and chyna

January Jones, Kim Zolciak, Alicia Silverstone, Padma Lakshmi, Mayim Bialik and Tamera Mowry did it and now Blac Chyna will be the next celebrity to eat her baby’s placenta after she gives birth.

The future Angela Kardashian revealed this tidbit during an interview on her BFF Amber Rose’s podcast, Play. It’s Loveline with Amber Rose on Wednesday, September 14.

“I feel like with my second baby, I’m more educated than the first one,” the former model told Rose “Just reading and knowing the pros of breast-feeding for your baby, and just recently I found out some new, cool stuff about not cutting the cord and sending your placenta; you can get these pills to take them after to make you and the baby healthy.”

She will also join company with her future sisters in law Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian who also revealed that they took placenta pills.

Chyna is expecting her second child with fiance Rob Kardashian. She has a son named King with ex-fiance rapper Tyga, who coincidentally is currently dating her future sister-in-law Kylie Jenner.  See this neat E! Chart

Eco-Friday: 10 Must-Reads for Having a Vegan-Pregnancy like these Celeb moms

vegan pregnancy
A few year ago, actress Emily Deschanel got some heat by continuing with her vegan diet while pregnant last year.  However, despite concerns, remaining vegan while pregnant can be done safely with the consultation of a doctor and nutritionist and maybe also by reading up on some recommended books on having a well-rounded vegan diet.
 She is not the only celebrity to stick with her vegan diet even while pregnant. Alicia Silverstone even wrote about her vegan pregnancy diet. Carrie Underwood, Natalie Portman and Allyson Hannigan  are vegans who softened up and switched to vegetarianism during pregancy.
The Happy Herbivore put together a post that includes a list of recommended books for having a safe vegan diet and pregnancy. Check them out:

Celebrity Mom Experts Backlash: Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Mama v. Critics

From Kristin Cavallari and Jenny McCarthy‘s vaccine stances, to Snooki’s expert book on parenting published within the same year of delivering her first baby to Jessica Alba‘s Honest company  to the numerous celebs who’ve launched maternity (Jessica Simpson, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Victoria Beckham) and baby clothing lines beyond, there seems to be a refreshed backlash against celebrity mom parenting experts of late.
Recently,  Gwyneth Paltrow and her controversial statements comparing Hollywood and 9-5 moms, and her reportedly pretentious stance on parenting were the subject of quite a few news articles.
And now, the latest celebrity mother to face the ire and snark of critics is Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Alicia Silverstone.
The Clueless star’s latest book “Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, A Radiant Pregnancy, A Sweeter Birth and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning” triggered such a visceral response from Herald Sun  writer Wendy Tuohy that she lashed out  against it and other celeb experts  in a commentary on the site. 
It starts: 

IN BREAKING news from Hollywood, parents who don’t sleep with their baby are guilty of borderline neglect, nappies are bad for babies (they should do their business “in the grass”), post-natal depression is what you get for doing your diet wrong — oh, and tampons can give you infertility.

And it doesn’t get kinder from there! Oy! Read the entire piece HERE
No doubt, because of their high profile and huge following, celebrity parents are able to use their strong brand presence among general audiences to secure clothing lines, book deals and command a platform to espouse whatever they wish. 
What are your thoughts generally? Understandable cashing in on their branding to make a living or exploiting their impressionable audiences for a quick buck?
