Pregnant Coleen Rooney’s Plan to Eat Placenta Dubbed ‘cannibalistic’ by Top Medic

Coleen Rooney might be planning to eat her placenta when she gives birth to her fourth child – but the controversial practice has now been slammed by a top medic.

Dr Alex Farr said new mums who eat the afterbirth “border on cannibalism”.

And the gynaecologist of Austria’s Vienna University said there was no proof that it has any health benefits.

“Medically speaking it’s a waste product. Most mammals eat it but we can only guess why,” the doctor told The Sun .

It’s been a tough old few months for Coleen after her bad boy hubby Wayne was busted drink driving behind the wheel of another woman’s car .

And earlier this week she revealed her plan to eat her own placenta when she gives birth, by having it turned into “mood balancing pills” which claim to stave off depression.

“Thank you so much for my gorgeous surprise box @Placentaplus1… Exciting,” tweeted Coleen, who was spotted not wearing her wedding ring on October 8.

But fans had mixed views on the controversial pills with some dubbing them “gross” while others simply wished her luck.

It’s not the first time that Coleen, 31, – who has sons Kai, seven, Klay, four, and Kit, one, with footballer Wayne – has eaten her afterbirth.

She also gobbled down the goodness-packed pills after welcoming Kit in January 2016, and said they left her feeling “positive”.

“They had a slightly metallic taste and they definitely made me feel energised. I felt full of very positive energy and it helped with a number of pregnancy symptoms such as the produce of milk,” she told the Daily Mirror.

“I slept really well and they helped to stabilise my weight after having Kit.

“Everyone has a different reaction but in my case they were great. There are so many ways to do it now so research what’s best for you.”

Meanwhile, her latest post also sparked speculation that she’s expecting a girl this time around.

Remarking on the pink box the pills came in, one follower asked, “Does this mean you’re having a girl?”
