'It's Not The Easy Way Out!': Kim Kardashian Talks About Surrogate

Date January 22, 2018 10:56

Kim Kardashian recently shared her experience of having a child via surrogacy. Days after welcoming her baby girl, she wrote a post on her official website where she talked about how different having a child was this time around.

In a bid to quell the rumors that her younger sister Kylie may have been her surrogate, Kim specified that she used a gestational carrier, “the technical term for a woman who carries a baby that she has no biological relationship to."

The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star shared how her medical issues and complications during the pregnancy and birth of her two children, North and Saint, meant she had no choice but to go the surrogacy route for baby no. 3.

She appreciated the agency for making her "feel at ease" with the process and mentioned that they were very thorough when it came to doing background checks on the surrogate.

The reality star also said she and her husband were grateful to the gestational carrier herself as she was "amazing."

In the post, Kim shed some light on the emotional toll having a baby this way took on her. She stated that it was not the "easy way out," adding that people naturally assumed it's an easier alternative because the woman does not have to deal with the body changes associated with pregnancy and delivery pain.

But for me, it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint.

At the end of the day, it was all worth it. She described the process as the "best experience" and was just grateful to have her baby girl.
