Jennica Garcia, gumawa ng smoothie gamit ang sariling placenta?!

Jennica Garcia has been enjoying the fruits of her labor - literally! 😆

After giving birth to her second child with husband Alwyn Uytingco last June 25, Jennica took to Instagram to share a part of her daughter’s birth story.

“I am so excited to share the birth story of our second child with you, but for now, I hope this will do. Meet our little angel and her sister placenta. They are on their third day together now. 💫 #FullLotusBirth” 

Yup, you read that right. When a woman gives birth, the placenta is expelled from their body after the baby is brought out. Normally, this and the umbilical cord are often disposed of by doctors, but as Jennica had a lotus birth, she and her husband opted to keep the umbilical cord attached to their baby and the placenta she was in. 

So, yes, in that bowl beside Jennica’s baby girl is the placenta she was in while inside her mother. 😆

But that’s not all they did with the placenta. 

“In the next photo, thanks to Irina (@irina_doula), you will see a lovingly prepared fruit smoothie. Blended with it, is a small piece of my daughter's own placenta,” she revealed. “To my surprise, my husband drank two sips from my smoothie before handing it over to me! 😂 While most would probably take the smoothie in one go, being worried that there might actually be a foul taste or smell from the placenta, I took a sweet time drinking mine and enjoyed every moment of it. We even kept a few more pieces in the freezer to be able to make more for later. Cheers! ☺️ #PlacentaSmoothie” 

Alwyn also wrote about their placenta shake in a post of his own.

“Gusto ko lang ikuwento sa inyo ang hawak kong ‘fruit shake’ sa litratong ito. ‘Yan ay isang PLACENTA shake na ginawa ng aming doula,” he wrote in his caption. “Maliit na portion mula sa placenta ng aming anak ay hinaluan ng strawberry, banana, frozen yogurt, at buko juice at saka binlend gamit ang isang maliit na blender.” 

“Bago ko ito ibigay sa aking asawa na siyang kailangan uminom nito ay tinikman ko muna. Halos ‘di ko na malasahan ang lasa ng placenta dahil sa mga prutas na kahalo nito,” he continued. “Marami raw itong benefits sa ating katawan lalo na sa mga babaeng kakapanganak pa lamang.” 

Well… To each their own. 😅 

In other news, it looks like the celebrity couple hasn’t been able to agree on a name for their second angel. 


A post shared by Alwyn S. Uytingco (@alwynzky) on

“‘Baby Alexis,’” Alwyn introduced his baby girl in a post just last night, June 27. “Hanggang ngayon, under deliberation pa ang full name ng aming second born! Pero sabi ko kay Jennica, hindi na negotiable ang palitan ang first name niya na ‘Alexis’ na mula sa name ni Nanay (@jennicauytingco) na ‘Jennica Alexis.’” 

Beautiful name though, right? 💕 

Jennica and Alwyn married back in February of 2014 after having been together for four years. Their first child, Athena Mori, was born in 2015.
