Key Takeaway

Kailyn Lowry, ‘Teen Mom’ star, made headlines when she posted a video of herself blending her own placenta into a smoothie after giving birth to her fifth child, Rio. This unconventional practice of ingesting the placenta has gained popularity among celebrity moms. Lowry also showcased her artistic side by creating artwork using the placenta. Despite her usual openness about her personal life, Lowry chose to keep this pregnancy and birth private, wanting to control her own narrative and share information on her own terms.

The Unusual Artistry of Placenta

Not only did Lowry choose to ingest her placenta, but she also showcased her artistic side by creating various art pieces using her “uterus leftovers.” The placenta Picassos, as she calls them, were displayed on paper. It’s worth noting that she took all necessary precautions during the handling process, including using gloves and other protective gear.

This whole experience was made possible through her collaboration with Lancaster Placenta Co, a company that specializes in placenta encapsulation services. It seems that this trend has become quite the phenomenon in recent years.

A Private Joy Amidst the Public Eye

Lowry’s decision to keep her pregnancy and birth under wraps is a departure from her usual public announcements. In an exclusive interview with People, she expressed her desire to have control over her own narrative, stating, “I wanted to be able to tell my own story on my own terms and kind of share what information I wanted to share instead of being within a contractual obligation or storyline.”

Lowry is already a mother to four other children, named Creed, Lux, Lincoln, and Isaac, ranging in age from 3 to 13 years old. With the arrival of baby Rio, she now embraces the new challenge of motherhood once again.
