Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on their second child’s birth! Kim and Kanye welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world on Saturday, December 5th.
Shortly after the baby boy’s debut into the world, Kim posted on her website, “KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!” Just a few short days earlier, Kim posted stating “Ready whenever you are lol.”
Kim definitely had her work cut out for her with this pregnancy. Not only did she have to deal with fertility issues, the baby was breech just days before delivery. A breech baby, is a baby that isn’t positioned head down in the birth canal. Instead, the baby is feet or buttocks down.
Kim revealed over the Thanksgiving holiday that she underwent a procedure to have the baby flipped into the correct position. This procedure is known as ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version.) Kim was quoted stating, “They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby. There was a risk that my water might break or the baby’s heart rate could drop—in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place. I went in with my sisters and my husband. I was prepared for it all!”
Kim also let us know exactly how the procedure felt with this quote, “They don’t give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!!”
Kim was able to give birth to the baby naturally, as she wanted, but stated “If it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section—but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not.”
Last but not least, it is speculated Kanye and Kim decided on a name! Rumor has it, they named their baby boy Easton West!
From all of us here at Contrast, congratulations Kim and Kanye!
