Kim may undergo C-section
American reality TV star Kim Kardashian (left), who is expecting her second child, has been warned that she may need a Caesarean section, as her baby is breech. “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 (sic),” she wrote on her blog.
The 35-year-old has been researching alternative options and is doing “everything she can” to get the baby to turn until her due date. “Since my baby is pretty big — over seven pounds — maybe he’s just too big at this point, but I started intensive chiropractic work,” Kim says, adding: “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 ...,” she said. Kim also says that she is feeling “anxious” about possibly needing the procedure, but will accept it if it’s necessary for her and the baby’s health.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star already has a daughter named North West with husband, rapper Kanye West.
