Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s Kim Kardashian West is using her harrowing story about childbirth to support the Bail Project. The reality star’s shapewear brand, SKIMS, used a holiday campaign ad to bring awareness to the causes nine women, including Kim, support.
She began her story by explaining how her pregnancy was complicated by preeclampsia and resulted in North’s early delivery.
“When I was pregnant with my daughter North, I had a condition called preeclampsia or toxemia, which is basically when the mom’s organs start to shut down. The only way to get rid of that is to deliver the baby. At 34 and a half weeks, I had to go into emergency labor — they induced me. North was 4 pounds. She was almost six weeks early.”
Kim goes on to recount how she had the same condition during her next pregnancy with son, Saint. After her son was born, the new mom had to have several surgeries within a year to fix internal damage caused by the pregnancy complications.
Still Wanted More Children, But Doctors Told The KUWTK Star No More IVF
After Saint’s birth, Kim still had two viable embryos that she froze several years prior. People reports that Kim wanted to try to implant the embryos in her uterus and try to carry two more children to term.
However, the doctors told her in no uncertain terms – absolutely not. Doing so would not only be dangerous for her, it would leave them open to malpractice.
I asked my doctors, ‘Can I do it one more time?’ And they were like, ‘We won’t even put an embryo in you — that would be like malpractice.'”
KUWTK Star Turns to Surrogacy
The doctors were successful in putting the fear of losing her life into the reality star. She chose to use surrogates for the final two embryos.
Her daughter Chicago was born in early 2018 and her son Psalm in May of 2019. Kim explains that she came from a large family and wanted that experience for her own children.
I grew up with so many siblings. I just loved being in a big environment… It was all worth it.”
Though her husband, Kanye West, may not be on the same page, Kim is “definitely done” having children.
Fans Accuse Kim of Photoshopping One of Her Kids into Family Christmas Photo
Christmas means presents, eggnog and the Kardashian family photo. This year Kim decided to change the game by skipping the Kardashian family and focusing on her own little family, the Kardashian Wests.
