Kim Kardashian Recalls Being Told She Had A Miscarriage While Pregnant With North West
While North West is turning seven-years-old this year, Kim Kardashian West had a major scare after being told she miscarried.
“I thought I had a miscarriage, cause I was really heavily bleeding and in so much pain. Went in, cause you have to go and do like a D&C [dilation and curettage] to clean out your miscarriage.”
She said a doctor told her,
“Oh, you had a miscarriage.”
Fortunately for the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, a heartbeat was very present at her next doctor’s visit.
But Kim Kardashian West added that the suspected miscarriage was just the beginning of her pregnancy complications.
“We ended up obviously having North, and I had a really bad pregnancy: I had preeclampsia, I delivered six weeks early, she was four pounds and I had something called placenta accreta, where the placenta grows inside your uterus. It’s honestly what people die from in childbirth, so you have to get the placenta out within a certain amount of time.”
She detailed how the doctor had to
“cut the placenta off with his hands left a hole… That muscle doesn’t grow back.”
After welcoming North West, she and her husband Kanye West went on to conceive on Saint West. But after experiencing dire complications with that pregnancy, they went the surrogacy route for their two youngest children, Chicago West, and Psalm West.
She said on the podcast that she and Kanye West saw a surrogacy therapist for their first experience.
“You get your surrogate attorney, you get your surrogate broker and then the broker recommended that we use a therapist that would communicate with me first and then communicate with her and kind of be our liaison.
“Towards the end we got close enough where we could communicate really without that. [The therapist] would suggest, ‘Hey, I think you guys should communicate once a week through text, maybe on Mother’s Day. She’s a mother as well. Maybe get her a massage or something that’s appropriate for her to pamper.’”
“Things like going through the birthing plan, so if anything was uncomfortable she would be that buffer to say, ‘This is who I want in the room. What are you comfortable with? How does this work?”
We’re glad Kim K and North are okay!
