Kim Kardashian Opens Up on Her Painful Journey to Motherhood

Kim Kardashian West has opened up about her harrowing and painful journey to motherhood in a new campaign for her SKIMS clothing range.

The mum-of-four got candid about her horrific pregnancy complications in a video released on Thursday which saw her speak honestly about her push for a third labor birth despite doctors’ refusal.

The KUWTK star, 39, relived her ‘pain’ as she spoke about suffering from severe pre-eclampsia or toxemia which ultimately forced her to turn to surrogacy.

The Hollwood A-lister described the devastating moment her doctors told her: “We won’t even put an embryo in you as that would be like malpractice.”

The promotional video sees the reality TV star wearing a chocolate-brown coloured lounge set from her new clothing range as she talks to the cameras about her pregnancy struggles.

She started by explaining that pre-eclampsia is a condition women suffer during pregnancy which sees ‘the mom’s organs start to shut down’.

Kim continued: “The only way to get rid of that is to deliver the baby at 34.5 weeks. I had to go into emergency labour -so they induced me and North was just four pounds and six weeks early.

The star then relived the horrifying experience after she delivered North when her placenta ‘never came out’ and it “grew inside my uterus’.

She explained how serious the condition is and shockingly described how the condition is a main cause in how ‘women die from in childbirth.’


Kim went on the reveal how she was able to carry on and have more children after deciding to freeze her eggs and use the embryos.

This process allowed her to give birth to her second child, son Saint, but the star admitted she suffered from “another awful delivery” and the “same conditions.”

After being forced to endure five different operations to fix the damage caused by another pregnancy, doctors refused to let Kim go through the experience again.

She said: “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’.”

After being giving an ultimatum, Kim decided to turn to two different surrogacies and use her last two embryos.

Power couple Kim and Kanye went on to welcome their second daughter Chicago in January 2018 and their second son Psalm in May this year.

The star announced her grateful attitude to having children and insisted she was “thankful no matter how they came to me.”

Kim also admitted that she would have gone through “the same pain and back” for the amazing result of having her four children.

She concluded by confirming “it was all worth it,” before explaining SKIM’s holiday campaign with The Bail Project as well as its $100,000 donation to a number of organisations.

The clip ended with Kim saying: “It’s really important to me that families are reunited and connected, especially this holiday season.”
