Kim Kardashian says using a surrogate was ”hard”
Reality television star, Kim Kardashian recently welcomed her third child with husband, Kanye West and she’s opening up about the struggles of having to use a surrogate.
Kim wrote on her website, “Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it’s the easy way out is completely wrong”.
The mother of two had earlier made it known that she was suffering from placenta accreta and preeclampsia which prevented her from carrying her third pregnancy. After opting for the services of a surrogate whose identity has so far been kept secret, Kim says, ”People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint.”
That regardless, Kim says she felt an instant connection to the newborn and “it’s as if she was with us the whole time”.
