Kim Kardashian Gives Detailed Explanation of Her High Risk Pregnancy

Kim Kardashian West is opening up about her high-risk pregnancy and giving new details about the difficulties she had while giving birth to her daughter North.

The 35-year-old reality star is currently pregnant with her second child with husband Kanye West.

“I have been very open and honest about my pregnancy struggles. This pregnancy, I’m definitely scared for my delivery, but trying my best to be hopeful and not stress out too much!” Kim wrote on her website KimKardashianWest.com and app.

“We induced my labor and I had North soon after. Right after delivery, the placenta usually then comes out. Mine did not. My placenta stayed attached inside my uterus, which is a condition called placenta accreta. This is a high-risk condition that happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall,” Kim continued.

My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!! My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.

They say that this is what some women died from as a result of childbirth back in the day, without proper care. I’m so thankful that my doctor was able to catch this and address the issue immediately.

However, with the issues I had last time, my risk of having preclampsia and placenta acreeta are increased and there’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen. So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow.

My advice to anyone going through this or anything difficult during pregnancy is that all you can do is be hopeful, get the best information out there and just be prepared. The more information you have, the better you know how to handle it!

    like she felt anything when the doctor put his whole hand in that loose hole…who is she kidding.

  • Narissa

    It so sad but I don’t believe a word of this story. Nothing the Kardashians do or say is trustworthy to me.

  • devvv

    This was all so unnecessary to share. They love to complain about not having privacy but she just gave a full rundown of her private doctor’s appointment.

  • Wendy

    So, in other words, nothing wrong in this pregnancy at all, but she is scared because of what happened with North. So she just wants us all to think it’s bad. I can’t deal with this woman.

    stfu kim. you being pregnant isnt “interesting” anymore (never was to me).

  • b324

    See what I don’t get is she talked about how there was placenta left over in her uterus for almost a year and had to have surgery to fix stuff before attempting to get pregnant again. But throughout that, she never got sick, or you know, died. I would imagine a piece of placenta left for even a couple days would be absolutely horrific and have severe health complications. But almost a year? Come on. You read stories about women after they give birth, or have a miscarriage or an abortion, everything has to be cleaned out or the woman can get sick and die.

    It’s that kind of stuff with all of what she just said that makes it hard for me to believe her.

    These people have no shame whatsoever and lie about everything! I don’t even believe she is pregnant. Seriously, what woman would wear all that exceptionally constricting clothing if she had even half of the complaints that Kim says she has. There is a surrogate out there carrying their pre-selected gender baby and Kim will go into “labor” when the surrogate does!
