Kim Kardashian, who is currently heavily pregnant with her second child, has revealed that she might have to deliver her baby via caesarean because her baby son is breech.
The reality star, 35, revealed the news on her subscription-based website in a blog post called Heads Up! According to Us Weekly she said: “I’m writing this blog while up at 4am, a little anxious for my delivery as I’m entering into my 36th week of pregnancy.
“I’ve surrendered to the placenta issues and actually haven’t been thinking too deeply about them lately. However, 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. So now, I will have to get a C-section. Or so I thought!”
Kim wrote that she stayed up for part of the night researching alternatives. “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 any more.
“Paul was my mom’s doctor and delivered me! So I know I’m in the best care.”
Kim said she is now doing whatever it takes to get her son to turn: “Since my baby is pretty big – over seven pounds – maybe he’s just too big at this point but I started intensive chiropractic work with Dr Elliot Berlin. He is ‘the’ pregnancy chiropractor! I’ve learned so much from my few sessions with him.
“I have been doing everything I can to try to turn the baby. I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes. 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!”
Kim’s mother Kris Jenner had six children and sister Kourtney gave birth to three children but Kim said they can’t help her out with advice and that is particularly difficult for her.
“It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or Kourtney for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both – with nine total pregnancies! – have never experienced one of these crazy things. I’m doing the research myself and want to share with you what I know. 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.
“Please wish me luck and pray the baby turns! This whole delivery gives me anxiety,
