Kim Kardashian West reveals another health risk in her pregnancy

26 November 2015, 08:48

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West may need a caesarean section.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is due to give birth to her and Kanye West's second child, a son, next month, but she has learned she may be unable to deliver naturally as he is breech, meaning his head is still facing upwards.

She wrote on her blog: "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!"

The 35-year-old beauty has been researching alternative options and is doing "everything she can" to get the baby to turn until her due date.

She explained: "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!(sic)"

Kim - who also has two-year-old daughter North with Kanye - admitted she is feeling "anxious" about possibly needing the procedure, but will accept it if it's necessary for her and the baby's health.

She said: "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, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I'm prepared for anything!"
