According to Eonline, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed a baby boy named Saint West! The reality star gave birth to their child, the couple's second, on Saturday morning. "KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!" Kim wrote on her website and app. "Mother and son are doing well," the message stated. His name was not revealed.
Kim was able to undergo a procedure over the Thanksgiving-holiday weekend to have the baby turned in the correct direction, head pointing down. "This weekend I checked into the hospital and underwent a procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version), which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position," she revealed in a Dec. 1 blog post.
"They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby," she continued. "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!"
"They don't give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful," Kim wrote. "Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!!"
