Kim Kardashian's take on her complicated pregnancies and multiple corrective surgeries 

Kim Kardashian suffered a great deal to become a proud mother of four. The fashionista and beauty mogul experienced horrifying dangers during her pregnancy, such as the possibility of multiple organ shutdown. 

She posted a video of herself posing in a dark brown cozy piece from her Cozy SKIMS collection. The post is a part of her holiday campaign for SKIMS. It tells the stories of multiple women, including herself.

Kim's story featured her struggles with pregnancy. The star suffered through a medical issue called preeclampsia. This complication results in multiple organ shutdown if not monitored extensively.

In the clip Kim says, “When I was pregnant with my daughter North, I had a condition called preeclampsia or toxemia, which is basically when the mom’s organs start to shut down,” she stated within the clip.

The star went on to say, “The only way to get rid of that is to deliver the baby. At 34 and a half weeks, I had to go into emergency labor — they induced me. North was 4 pounds. She was almost six weeks early,”

Later the star went on to explain how, after her delivery, her placenta never delivered, instead it continued to grow inside of her uterus. “That is what women die from in childbirth,” Kim said.

She explained, “After my daughter was born, I still continued to do the process of freezing my eggs. I was able to get pregnant through that with my son Saint, and then I had two embryos left. I had the same condition, same awful delivery that I had with my first daughter.”

“After that, I had to have five different operations within a year and a half to fix the damage that all of that did on the inside.”

Kim wanted another child, and so when she asked her doctors, they replied by saying, "We won’t even put an embryo in you — that would be like malpractice."
