American television personality Kardashian West had made it clear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she wants another child even though her doctors have warned her about the health risks of carrying another baby because she suffered from placenta accreta during her last pregnancy.
Placenta accreta is a condition in which the placenta grows into the wall of a womb and prevents it from easily detaching at the time of birth.
The Actress said “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!!!” Kardashian West wrote in her blog about giving birth to her first child while dealing with the condition, which she said affects five percent of women giving birth. “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.”
She further said on the reality show “I’d just love nothing more than to expand my family and just know that I have this world at home that’s safe,”
“And if for some reason I left this earth sooner than I really wanted to, then my kids would have a support system at home so that I know that they would be okay if I wasn’t here.”
Kardashian West underwent a procedure to help her carry another baby if she chooses to, but it doesn’t work out for her.
“I can’t carry anymore kids … it’s the worst, it’s not going to be happy for me.. I had a full break down … I give up.”
The mother of two started considering a surrogate after two doctors told her it would be unsafe for her to get pregnant again. She also disclosed to a mother who used a surrogate in addition to giving birth herself to talk about her fear of not loving the child the same.
“I’ve come to the conclusion in my mind that I can’t carry another one. So now I want to explore surrogacy,” Kardashian West told her mother, Kris Jenner,
