Kim Kardashian (39) has had a few problematic pregnancies, and the reality star has never made a secret of that. It is also the reason why her two youngest children are born through a surrogate mother. But Kim kept the details to herself for the most part until now.
In a movie that Kim Kardashian posted on Instagram, the reality star talks frankly about the heavy toll that her first two pregnancies took. “When I was pregnant with my daughter, North, I had a condition called pre-eclampsia,” she says. “That actually means that the mother’s organs start to switch off. The only way to prevent that is to give birth.”
Kim continues: “After 34 weeks and a half, I have to have an emergency birth. I was introduced.” Kleine North, who was born about six weeks early, weighed less than two kilograms. But that didn’t mean the end of Kim’s problems, she says. “After birth, my placenta did not come out. My placenta grew in my womb and that is precisely the reason why women die during labor,” it sounds.
“Again I had the same condition and I had to endure the same terrible birth I had with my daughter,” Kim recalls. “In a year and a half, I had to go through five different operations to repair the damage that was done inside. And in the meantime, I kept on filming and doing photo shoots.” Kim still longed for a larger family, but doctors warned her that a new pregnancy would be fatal. They said: “We don’t even want to implant an embryo in you anymore. That would be malpractice.”
Fortunately, Kim and her husband, Kanye West, were able to count on surrogate mothers to expand their family with their daughter Chicago and son Psalm. And the reality star has no regrets about what happened.
