“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."
She said that after her delivery, her placenta never came out, but instead grew inside her uterus.
“That is what women die from in childbirth,” Kim said.
"After my daughter was born, I still continued to do the process of freezing my eggs. I was able to get pregnant through that with my son Saint, and then I had two embryos left. I had the same condition, same awful delivery that I had with my first daughter,” Kim explains.
"After that, I had to have five different operations within a year and a half to fix the damage that all of that did on the inside."
After welcoming Saint, doctors refused to let Kim go through IVF again for her own sake.
"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,'" she said.
The KKW Beauty founder then turn to surrogacy to have 23-month-old daughter Chicago in January 2018 and 7-month-old son Psalm in May.
“I’m so thankful for my beautiful kids, no matter how they came to me — they came to me. I’m so thankful for surrogates. I’m really thankful for my family. I grew up with so many siblings. I just loved being in a big environment. I would have gone through the same pain and back for the result of having my babies. It was all worth it,” Kim said.
