Blac Chyna is doing things differently for baby No. 2!

The 28-year-old mom-to-be sat down with pal Amber Rose on Play.It’s Loveline with Amber Rose this week — and admitted that she feels “more educated” on motherhood the second time around.

Chatting with Rose and Dr. Chris Donaghue, Chyna said that she’s been reading up on the benefits of eating ones placenta.

“I just recently I found out some new, cool stuff about not cutting the cord and sending your placenta…” she confessed. “You can get these pills to take them after to make you and the baby healthy.”

Chyna was quick to point out that the act is incredibly natural. “If you notice dogs and cats — when they have their babies, they eat the placenta. You’re like, ‘No, don’t do that!’ But they do! It’s a healthy thing.”

“I feel like with my second baby, I’m more educated than the first one,” she added.

Of course, Chyna’s not the first celebrity to talk eating her placenta. Those who advocate placentophagy believe that consuming the placenta prevents postpartum depression and other pregnancy complications.

Chyna isn’t worried about postpartum depression this time around — and thanks her finacé Rob Kardashian for that.

“I’m more ready than anything.” she said. “I’m relaxed. [I’ve had] no cravings, no morning sickness — thank God! I could do it again!”

The three also talked breastfeeding — addressing Shanna Moakler‘s 2013 remarks in which she said the practice was “incestual” and “gross.”

“I feel obligated, in a sense,” Chyna said. “Maybe [it’s] my motherly instinct. Just reading and knowing the pros of breastfeeding for your baby…”

Already a mom to 3-year-old son King Cairo, Chyna revealed she’s expecting a baby girl during the Sunday premiere of her reality show, Rob & Chyna

She and Kardashian recently opened up to PEOPLE about how excited they are to be building a family together — and how their first child together may only be the beginning.

“We definitely discussed having kids,” Chyna told PEOPLE. “Rob made it very clear that he wanted to have a baby. Babies, actually! He wants me to have, like, four.”

Animals eat the placenta so that predators dont smell the presence of the newborns. Theyre getting rid of the evidence. And There is no scientific evidence to show that eating your placenta helps prevent ppd or give you your nutrients as many will be destroyed in the process of drying. Celebrities always gotta be different.

Whatanidiot on

Soooooo she had a goal of gaining 100 lbs during her pregnancy and when she gives birth she wants to eat the placenta cuz its healthy….ok.

Wow you're dumb on

If you believe that i have a bridge to sell you

Susan on

” I feel more educated with this pregnancy” Says the woman that thought it was a good idea to gain 100 pounds in this same pregnancy. If doctors thought eating your placenta was a healthy and good thing, they would encourage it like they encourage breastfeeding.

Karen on

Rob will eat it. He’ll eat anything.

Sonia on

Oh for god sake. This came from a woman who was willing to gain 100lbs of babyweight….huh…poor poor baby girl!

Vens on

If she eats it raw, i want it televised…

Roseanne on

Please stop giving this girl any press! What she says or thinks is so not news worthy! Unless you’re trying to appeal to the 14 to 16 year old teenage girls. Just make sure you give it the same coverage when this disaster explodes and she takes this guy to the cleaners for the next 18 years!
Didn’t she already have 1 kid? Was she sleeping through his infancy? Any mother would know what to do, this one was trying to gain 100 lbs, so she could be more famous, right? So she could be like her friend, Kim? Until her doctor told her to stop, I’m sure! What is wrong with this generation, it’s a very bad sign of things to come.
These 2 immature kids need to get off the tv now!

slicvic on

Oh god what will People print next, why don’;t she just eat the baby’s first poop too. Some of the crap these celebs come up with is coming out of the mouth of idiots. I really don’t care if she eats Rob, gobble him up . You wanted to gain lots of weight during this pregnancy. God help these low life people

Animals eat the placenta so they don’t attract predators to their newborns. Think of the placenta as a filter, because that it what it is. Would you want to eat your water filter after using it for 9 months? I wouldn’t.
