On the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim met up with two different doctors to find out if it was safe for her to get pregnant again and the answers were nor what she was looking for. It seems like a third child would really put her life in danger.
“I think the potential fear of the situation is legitimate,” OB/GYN Dr. Paul Crane told a shocked Kim and mom Kris Jenner in his office. “You’re always taking a little bit of a chance. There are situations that could be life or death.”
“You could bleed to death, “added Kris worried.
Kim has already had two difficult and life threatening pregnancies and a third time she might not be so lucky. The second opinion, Dr. Andy Huang, shared the same concern.
“You getting pregnant again would be a high-risk pregnancy.”
The specialist recommended Kim to use a surrogate mother if she really wished for another baby.
On the way back home Kim shared her concern with her sister Courtney.
“I want to have my own baby, but I truly don’t know if my body can handle it one more time,” she said. “There’s just a lot of fears I have, and a lot of unanswered questions.”
The two sisters met up with Natalie Gerber, a woman that depended on a surrogate to deliver her twins. The first question was whether the same bond between mother and child occurs with this method. “My biggest fear is, would I love them the same. That’s the main thing I keep thinking about that scares me,” Kim said.
“There’s not a day where I have any thought that my love for my kids is different,” Natalie assured her.
After the discussion took place Kim seemed more at ease with the idea and decided to give surrogacy a chance.
