She’s just 4 weeks away from reaching her due date, but Kim Kardashian is now struggling with concerns that her unborn baby son is breech.

Taking to her website, the 35-year-old admitted that her baby boy’s head ‘is up and it’s supposed to be down’.

She write candidly: “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.”

Kim- who is already mum to daughter North West- revealed that she had researched breech births and was confident that she would not have to have a C-section.


She wrote: "As I lay awake late at night, researching, 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."

“I found it very interesting that I do have this option to deliver a breech baby as opposed to just jumping into a C-section.

“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.”

She added: “I guess 4 percent of women are faced with [breech babies] - so, lucky me! It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or [my sister] for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both - with nine total pregnancies! - have never experienced one of these crazy things.”
