In a new promo for SKIMS, Kim shared, "When I was pregnant with my daughter North, I had a condition called pre-eclampsia or toxemia, which is basically when the mom's organs start to shut down. The only way to get rid of that is to deliver the baby."
"At 34 1/2 weeks I had to go into emergency labor, they induced me," she continued. "North was four pounds, she was almost six weeks early. After I delivered, my placenta never came out, so that's called placenta accreta. So my placenta grew inside my uterus and that is what women die from in child birth."
"Well, after that, I actually had to have five different operations within a year and a half to fix the damage that all of that did from the inside. But on the outside, I was filming and photoshoots, and you know."
"I asked my doctors, 'Can I do it one more time?' and they were like, 'We won't even put an embryo in you, that would be like, malpractice.' And I opted to have a surrogate to use the last — two different surrogates — to use the last two embryos that we had."
"I grew up with so many siblings that I just love being in a big family environment and I would have gone through the same pain, you know, and back for the result of having my babies. It was all worth it," she concluded.
