Kim Kardashian: Why North's Birth Was "The Most Painful Experience"

Kim Kardashian has every right to be terrified of labor.

When she was pregnant with North West in 2013, Kardashian suffered from preeclampsia.  During her June delivery, things got worse for the new mom.  

Normally the placenta comes out right after the baby is born, but with Kardashian, her doctor had to go into her womb and scrape it out by hand.

In a post on her site today, Kardashian called the procedure the "most painful experience of my life."

With baby number two, a boy, due in December, Kardashian is frightened about labor because her previous condition could have negative effects. 

"With the issues I had last time, my risk of having preclampsia and placenta acreeta are increased and there’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery.

"In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen.”

The 35-year-old, who has been honest about not loving pregnancy, wanted to share her story with other expectant moms.

“My advice to anyone going through this or anything difficult during pregnancy is that all you can do is be hopeful, get the best information out there and just be prepared,” Kardashian wrote.

“The more information you have, the better you know how to handle it!”
