Complications

Kim has always said she was very happy being pregnant and carrying her own children. Unfortunately, she suffered some major complications while pregnant with both North and Saint West that prevented her from being able to carry her youngest two children.

The reality TV star dealt with preeclampsia, a common but potentially dangerous complication that can cause swelling and increased blood pressure. She also struggled with placenta accreta, a condition where the placenta stays attached to the uterine wall and can cause blood loss.

Turning To Surrogates

After her second pregnancy with Saint, Kim says she had to undergo five surgeries to fix the damage done by the placenta accreta. She asked her doctors at the time if she could potentially carry another child and was told that would be tantamount to malpractice.

Kim turned to surrogates instead, making sure to be honest and upfront with them about who they would be carrying a baby for. The media mogul said she wanted to find the perfect fit for her family and vice versa.

Forming A Bond

It was important for Kim to foster a strong bond between her and her surrogates. She utilized the help of a surrogate therapist during the pregnancy of Chicago. The therapist helped Kim and the surrogate find the right words to create an emotional relationship. They eventually stopped needing the therapist to communicate.

Kim says she still keeps in touch with the surrogates of both Chicago and son Psalm West. They may not talk to each other every single day, but she says there is an understanding and respect there.

Genetics

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently appeared on Laura Wasser's podcast All's Fair where she revealed more details of how surrogacy has impacted her family.

According to Kim, some fans of the Kardashian West family don't believe Chicago is actually genetically Kim's daughter. They think the little girl looks more like the surrogate than her mother. Kim said she was getting tired of pointing out that is literally impossible given Chicago is the result of Kim's egg. Let's hope Chicago doesn't hear these rumors herself someday.
