Sharna Burgess ingests her placenta to aid postpartum recovery


Sharna Burgess is ingesting her placenta in pill form after welcoming son Zane.

“I highly recommend this,” the “Dancing With the Stars” pro, 37, wrote during a Tuesday Instagram Story Q&A.

“I had my placenta picked up by our baby nurse who is also a doula,” the choreographer went on to write. “She processed my placenta … and put it into capsules for me.”

Burgess takes “two a day, like a vitamin,” she explained.

The dancer claimed that postpartum placenta ingestion “is said to help with hormone balancing, milk production, PPD prevention and all around recovery.”

As for her own experience, Burgess wrote, “My recovery has been amazing and my mood and milk the whole time have been positive.”

When asked by a different Instagram follower about her postpartum emotions, the new mom called them “a flood.”

She explained, “It’s beautiful and it’s terrifying. I have these irational [sic] fears of all the ways I can f–k it up. But then instinct also kicks in and I realize I got this.”

The Aussie gave birth on June 28 to her and Brian Austin Green’s first child together, the 49-year-old actor’s fifth. (The “BH90210” alum is also the father of Kassius, 20, with Vanessa Marcil, as well as Noah, 9, Bodhi, 8, and Journey, 5, with Megan Fox.)

While debuting Zane’s face via Instagram earlier this month, Burgess wrote that becoming a mom “cracked [her] wide open.”

She wrote, “I never knew love of this kind or capacity existed and it’s beautifully overwhelming to process. … I will love him and worry about him until my last breath and beyond.”

Green, for his part, called Burgess an “amazing” mother during a recent interview with E! News.

“She’s been an amazing stepmom to the three younger ones that I have, but she was worried,” he told the outlet on July 7. “She was like, ‘I don’t know if when I have my own baby, if I’ll be able to do all the things that you’re supposed to do.’ And she just snapped right into it.”
