Khloe Kardashian plans to eat her placenta after giving birth

Khloe Kardashian plans to follow in the footsteps of her older sisters and eat her placenta after giving birth.

The reality star, who is pregnant with her first child, revealed this intention during a conversation with her sister Kim on Sunday's episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

"I'm gonna eat it in pills," Khloe, 33, said on the episode.

Kim, 37, and Kourtney Kardashian, 38, have both been vocal about ingesting their placentas after having a child in the past.

Although the impact of a mother eating the placenta following childbirth is not scientifically conclusive, many women believe doing so can lead to a greater production of milk and a lower level of post-partum depression, according to the American Pregnancy Association.

Kim detailed her decision to take her placenta pills after giving birth to her second child, Saint, in 2015, writing in a website post in the time that she'd read testimonials from other women who believed it positively impacted their recovery.

"I had great results and felt so energized and didn't have any signs of depression," Kim wrote in the post.

This was me leaving a dinner with my high school friends right after we left our 20 year high school reunion! I had planned this for about a year and kept checking with my friends to make sure they wouldnโ€™t flake! I loved high school and loved seeing so many of the smart gorgeous girls I went to high school with! So proud of everyone and all they have achieved! Such a fun night and so glad I reconnected with some people I havenโ€™t seen in forever! #Marymount

Good Morning
#ad Little update for you guys. I’m on Day 9 of my Shake It Baby program from @flattummyco and I’m actually feeling so good. We had a massive Christmas this year and between my Mom's party, Christmas and New Years… I felt like it was impossible to fit in my regular work outs and eat healthy. But this program is giving me a kick in the right direction that I need. These meal replacement shakes are so good and it’s helping me get my tummy back to flat in the new year. The results I’m seeing and feeling are amazing and I’m so excited for the next few weeks. Because they’re all about getting women back on track… they’ve got a 20% off sale going on right now if you want to start 2018 off right… trust me, you’re going to want to check them out.

Kourtney, meanwhile, described the placenta pills as "life changing" in a 2015 Instagram post.

Khloe, who is expecting her child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, also revealed on Sunday's episode that she plans to give birth in Cleveland. Thompson plays forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The episode also chronicled Khloe's decision not to confirm her pregnancy to the public after news first broke last summer that she is expecting.

"I'm still waiting to be in a safe spot, and it's my choice to do that," she said on the show. "It's my decision."

Khloe will be the third member of the Kardashian-Jenner family to welcome a new child in recent months. Kim and her husband Kanye's third child, daughter Chicago, arrived via surrogate in January, while Kylie Jenner gave birth to her first kid, daughter Stormi, earlier this month.
