Kim Kardashian will go under the knife to strengthen the possibility of having a third child with husband Kanye West.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty, who is mother to daughter North, three, and son Saint, 15 months, has suffered tremendously with fertility issues and high-risk pregnancies, but in an upcoming episode of her reality TV show she reveals she considering surgery to help her conceive another baby.
"I have to go in and prepare my uterus because I decided I want to try and have one more baby," she tells her family in a teaser clip from the forthcoming episode, which airs in America on Sunday (02Apr17).
"I have to have a surgery on my uterus to kind of prepare this hole, so they need to, like, clean that out and then there's scar tissue," Kim elaborates, "It'll still be a really high-risk pregnancy."
During her pregnancy with daughter North, the 36-year-old was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, a dangerous condition that causes high blood pressure and other issues, and as she carried son Saint, Kim suffered from placenta accreta, a condition where the placenta grows deep into the uterus.
Although she could have died in both cases, the reality TV star is determined to go forward with plans to have baby number three.
"Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle," she acknowledges. "I've gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don't feel like it's safe again for me to conceive myself."
"This surgery is really the one last thing I can try," Kim adds. "I want my kids to have siblings, and I want to know that I did everything I could to make this happen."
