Kardashian has said her unborn son is breech and she has been researching birthing options.
Kim Kardashian has spoken about her anxieties over her unborn son’s birth, revealing that he is in breech. Kardashian is due to give birth next month, but is worried because her baby is is currently in the wrong position for childbirth, as his head still is facing upwards.
Kim Kardashian has written about her fears over her second child’s birth.
"My latest concern is that my baby is breech, meaning he's in the wrong position for childbirth. His head is still up and it's supposed to be down. He was supposed to turn by 32 weeks,” she wrote on her official website.
When a baby is breech they are usually delivered by C-section, however Kardashian has been researching her other options. "As I lay awake late at night, researching, I've learned that you actually can deliver a breech baby and I feel fortunate that my doctor Paul Crane is one of the few doctors that still does this. They just don't even teach it anymore.”
“I found it very interesting that I do have this option to deliver a breech baby as opposed to just jumping into a C-section. Obviously, if it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section - but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not.”
“I guess 4 percent of women are faced with [breech babies] - so, lucky me! It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or [my sister] for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both - with nine total pregnancies! - have never experienced one of these crazy things.”
The reality star added that she’s been trying to find ways to help her baby, who is over 7lbs, to turn. “I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes,” she continued. “I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position.”
“I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!” Last moth Kardashian, who is also mother to two-year-old North West, described pregnancy as the "worst experience" of her life.
"I'm gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL!. I don't enjoy one moment of it and I don't understand people who enjoy it,” Kardashian wrote.
"Maybe it's the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf**k of how your body expands and nothing fits. I just always feel like I'm not in my own skin. People just don't tell you all of the gross things that happen during pregnancy or after. Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards! LOL! No one told me that! #SoSexy."
