‘Teen Mom’: Kailyn Lowry Drinks a Placenta Smoothie After Giving Birth to Fourth Child
“No name yet but we are all healthy and so in love,” she told E! News on Aug. 3. “I can check giving birth during a pandemic off my bucket list now.”
A few days after giving birth, the reality star posted that she was drinking her placenta in a smoothie.
Kailyn Lowry gives birth to baby No. 4
Lowry hasn’t spoken in detail yet about how the birth actually went, but she did an Instagram Q&A with her following on July 15 where she answered questions about her birth plan.
The reality star was always set on having a home birth. One fan asked if she was going to do a “water birth or regular home birth.”
“This I’m not decided on. I figured we will see how I feel while I’m in labor. I have [a] tub I can set up for the water but I’m not sure I envision it in the tub,” she wrote.
One fan asked Lowry if she plans on having friends and family present. Apparently, the Teen Mom star prefers a low-key atmosphere.
“No. I have had a birth where friends and family were present and I’ve had births where it was just the father and me. & for me, I prefer less people. I like silence during contractions & don’t love seeing people immediately after I give birth,” she wrote.
At the time of the Q&A, Lowy also said that the father of the baby, Chris Lopez, would not be invited to the birth.
“I’m not going to allow my followers to tell me what I should or shouldn’t do based on what you see on IG live or even what I say on the show. My mental health and CONSISTENCY in my sons’ lives are more important than he said/she said. As their mother, I know in my heart I’m doing what I believe to be best. I’m sorry if everyone else disagrees,” she wrote.
Kailyn’s placenta smoothie
On Tuesday, Lowry posted a photo of a pink smoothie to her Instagram Stories.
“Can you guess what I’m drinking?” she captioned the photo, tagging the Lancaster Placenta Co.
“If you guessed my placenta, you’re right! Blended with fresh fruit and almond milk. Couldn’t taste the placenta at all!” she wrote in the next photo, this time of her mostly consumed blended beverage.
Lowry hasn’t shared a photo of her and the baby yet. But her fans are anxiously awaiting an update. In the meantime, we’re happy to know she and her baby boy are “healthy and so in love.”
