Before giving birth to Saint in 2015, Kim wrote on her website about her experience giving birth to North. “My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails,” she wrote. “My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before.” And even after that horrible experience, she went on, she still had to have surgery to remove it.
She had the same problems when she had Saint. Because of the pre-eclampsia and other difficulties – such as Saint being in the breech birth position – Kim ended up having her labor induced several weeks before she planned it. But luckily, everything went smoothly, and both mother and baby went home safely.
