Add one more celebrity to the list of new moms eating their placentas a practice that inspires plenty of disgust and curiosity, but which some women swear by as a health booster after childbirth.

The latest to extol its effects is actress Gaby Hoffmann, star of the HBO show Girls, who gave birth in November and said consuming her placenta gave her energy and increased her milk supply.

Actress Gaby Hoffman, seen here on September 4, gave birth to a baby daughter in November.

Placenta, placenta, placenta. Just eat that (expletive) up, and it does a girl good, Hoffmann told People magazine.

I made smoothies out of it for three weeks. I had a home birth, so my midwife and my doula took it and cut it up into 20 pieces and froze it, and every day, I put it in a blender with strawberries and blueberries and guava juice and a banana.

Other celebrities, including January Jones and Alicia Silverstone, have claimed similar benefits of the practice, known as human placentophagia. Supporters say it can give new moms more vigor, help them fight postpartum depression and stimulate milk production.
