Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have just welcomed their second child, baby boy Saint West, but the couple who talked about having at least three children are already putting a stop to their plans to extend their family.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian’s recent pregnancy, labor, and delivery to son Saint West was so hard on her body that doctors are reportedly advising the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her husband, Kanye West, not to go through another pregnancy.
Kim Kardashian has been very public with revealing her pregnancy struggles. The reality star has been open about suffering from placenta accreta, a possible life-threatening condition, during her pregnancies with Saint West and daughter North West. Doctors allegedly told Kim Kardashian and Kanye West that if she were to get pregnant again, they can nearly guarantee that she’d have placenta accreta again and put both her life and her unborn child’s life at risk.
Sources have revealed that Kim Kardashian is terrified of having another extremely painful birth, like the one that she had with newborn son Saint West. The recent labor and delivery made the decision not to have a third child much easier on the star.
However, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West seem cool with not having more children, at least for now. The pair are so busy with daughter North and son Saint that thinking of another new addition would just be too much for the famous couple right now.
All the while, Saint West has not been introduced to fans just yet. The couple will likely either release the first official photos of their son on their social media accounts or devise a plan to introduce him to the world. Sources reveal that little Saint is a “perfect baby,” who is eating great, sleeping a lot, and barely cries, which is reportedly the opposite of how his big sister North West was as a newborn.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has reportedly decided to “eat” her placenta. Us Weekly reports that the reality star announced to her fans that she has decided to have her placenta freeze dried and turned into supplements that she will ingest as a pill.
The benefits of ingesting your placenta after birth have been widely talked about and debated. Kim says that she doesn’t want the “baby blues,” and upon talking to other mothers have also tried this method decided, it was right for her. Kardashian reportedly hopes that eating her placenta will help give her energy, fight off postpartum depression, and balance out her hormones in the weeks following the birth of son Saint West.
“Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good. I totally recommend it for anyone considering it,” Kim Kardashian told her fans.
Of course, Kim isn’t the only celebrity mother to have her placenta freeze-dried and made into a supplement. Stars such as Mad Men star January Jones, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak, and former Girls Next Door star Holly Madison have all opened up about trying the method that some people have deemed unusual, while others have been inspired to follow in the celebrity moms’ footsteps and tried the method themselves.
In a previous episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney Kardashian expressed interest in eating her placenta as a meal after cooking it in the oven, and she even ordered a placenta online to prepare and feed her family, who were not happy about the mystery meat upon hearing what it actually was.
