Ex On The Beach babe Charlotte Dawson plans to get her placenta turned into tablets so she can eat it after she gives birth to her first child.
The former MTV wild child, who is the daughter of late comedian Les Dawson, says she has already packed freezer bags to freeze the placenta before getting it sent off to be made into pills.
Charlotte said: "I've got a freezer bag for freezing my placenta ready.
"I'm getting it made into pills and tablets."
Laughing when asked if her partner is also going to take the tablets as well via a now-deleted Instagram live session, Charlotte added: "Matthew isn't sharing the tablets."
The process of encapsulation sees the placenta be dehydrated, ground, and put into capsules.
On average, a single placenta makes around 200 pills.
The pills are often taken on a daily basis by the mother after birth.
While not medically confirmed, it is thought by some that eating the placenta can raise energy levels, improve the quantity of breast milk a new mother produces and also lowers chances of insomnia and postpartum depression.

Charlotte is due to give birth on January 25 – a week before what would have been her father's 90th birthday.
Daily Star previously revealed she plans to honour him in the name of her child.
Charlotte continued in a second Instagram live session on January 21 how she has loved being pregnant despite previously being creeped out by her friends' pregnancies.

Talking about her pregnancy journey, the starlet said: "I think I feel the best I've ever have.
"It is crazy. Being pregnant really is for me.
"Maybe I am going to be a baby-making machine.
"I dunno, I have genuinely absolutely loved being pregnant, it has been such a magical experience, it really really has.
"I used to be petrified when people say to me to come and feel their baby kick.
"But genuinely, genuinely, it is the best feeling in the whole world. I can't explain it.
"I want Matthew to feel him all the time. I get so excited when he kicks. Honestly, I have loved being pregnant."
Confirming she won't keep the birth a secret for long, Charlotte added: "Of course I will put something online and so will Matthew.
"Just a little foot or something as all the messages I've had have been amazing. Everyone keeps asking how I'm doing and if I'm in labour yet."
