Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips has placenta delivered home after baby daughter’s birth

Following the birth of her daughter last week, Shaughna Phillips received her placenta in the post and admitted to feeling “emotional” over the delivery.

The former Love Island contestant, who competed on season six of the show with Finley Tapp and Paige Turley, welcomed her daughter last week with her boyfriend, Billy Webb.

The 29 year old reality TV star has been documenting her motherhood journey on social media and earlier revealed how her first attempt at breastfeeding required “blood, sweat and nearly tears".

Shaughna took to her Instagram story on Thursday, where she told her 1.4 million followers about a recent delivery she had received from Placenta Plus.

“Look what’s arrived,” she captioned the post, which showed the silver box she got in the post. "Actually feel quite emotionally having this delivered!”

She added: "Knowing my placenta kept my little darling healthy and safe for 9 months. wow the hormones are real lol, going to sterilise some bottles and then show you what @placentaplus have made me."

Placenta Plus specialises in placenta encapsulation, which is the process of turning the organ into a vitamin pill, baby oil and various cosmetic products that promise the “best for both baby and mum.”

According to their website, they have worked with celebrities like Rochelle Humes, Coleen Rooney, Amy Childs, Brooke Vincent, and Charley Webb.

“Take no notice of the negative ninnies! Danielle encapsulated my placenta and I will hand on heart say it was the best decision I made! I'm so glad I had it done," Rochelle previously said.

Prospective mothers receive a specialist cooler pack before the birth, and upon the little tot’s arrival, the placenta is picked up within just a few hours for the process to begin.

Once the placenta arrives at their lab, it is processed after no more than twelve hours, and mothers can expect it within 48-72 hours.

Shaughna announced the birth on April 6 when she took to Instagram with two pictures of herself cradling the newborn.

"My darling Lucia, I wish I had you sooner so I could love you longer,” she captioned the post which has since been liked over 500k times. "04/04/2. 8lb 8oz. 8:10pm."

Fans and friends congratulated the former Celebs Go Dating star, with Mrs Hinch, real name Sophie Hinchliffe, posting: “Aww congratulations beautiful. Sending lots of love your way xx.”

“Congratulations beautiful!!” replied Tasha Ghouri, as Demi Jones added, “I’m so incredibly proud of you!!!! She is absolutely beautiful like her mummy. I love you so much!! Congratulations my angel girl.”
