Kim’s latest post on her website explains her disappointment at discovering her baby is still in the breech position. She is doing everything she can to avoid a C-section. Even standing on her head and hypnosis!

“I’m writing this blog while up at 4 A.M., a little anxious for my delivery as I’m entering into my 36th week of pregnancy,” the reality star, 35, wrote in a blog post titled Heads Up!

She added: “I’ve surrendered to the placenta issues and actually haven’t been thinking too deeply about them lately. However, my latest concern is that my baby is breech, meaning he’s in the wrong position for childbirth. His head is still up and it’s supposed to be down. He was supposed to turn by 32 weeks. So now, I will have to get a C-section. Or so I thought!”

“I’ve learned that you actually can deliver a breech baby and I feel fortunate that my doctor Paul Crane is one of the few doctors that still does this. They just don’t even teach it anymore,” she shared. “Paul was my mum’s doctor and delivered me! So I know I’m in the best care.”

“Since my baby is pretty big—over 7 pounds—maybe he’s just too big at this point but I started intensive chiropractic work with Dr. Elliot Berlin. He is ‘the’ pregnancy chiropractor! I’ve learned so much from my few sessions with him,” she shared. “I have been doing everything I can to try to turn the baby. I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes. I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!”

“I guess 4 percent of women are faced with this—so, lucky me!” Kim wrote. “It’s been hard because I usually go to my mum or Kourtney for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both—with nine total pregnancies!—have never experienced one of these crazy things. I’m doing the research myself and want to share with you what I know. Obviously, 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.”

“Please wish me luck and pray the baby turns!” Kim continued. “This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I’m prepared for anything!”

Did you have a breech baby? Share your tips below!

  • My daughter was in breech position and turned during the labour. That, together with an induced labour, made for a very painful experience, but it all turned out well in the end.

  • Wish you luck – turning the baby during the birth is not easy and quite painful – but sometimes these just have to be done.

  • I didn’t have a breech but I would’ve been about the same and was told by my OB that they could turn the baby. But no, I said. Then the baby decided to turn on his own shortly after. Not terribly pleasant but I was allowed to take pain relief until he’d finished doing it. Took a few hours.

  • I had an undiagnosed breech birth and had no problems, even though they didn’t realise he was breech til he was on his way out. Back then, I didn’t think too much of it other then more pain, the medical staff weren’t freaking. Now I think about and realise how lucky we were that it went so well, it could easily have had a bad outcome

  • My 2nd baby was in breech position at 37 weeks and we had organised date for csection and then she decided to turn.

  • Mine wasn’t a a breech baby. I hope she has a safe birth, whether breech or not.

  • I guess even though it is Kim K, it is good that she is sharing her issue with so many other women who could be going through the same thing.
