Los Angeles: Reality TV star Kim Kardashian reportedly suffered from “intense anxiety” ahead of giving birth to her second child Saint.
“She had some pretty intense anxiety the last couple of days (of pregnancy) and especially just before the baby came. She was scared for (this) delivery because of her past issues. She is thrilled (but it was) just so painful for her,” a source told people.com.
The 35-year-old television personality had shared her apprehensions earlier saying there was a chance she may have to go in for a hysterectomy following the baby’s arrival.
“With the issues I had last time, my risk of having preclampsia and placenta accreta are increased and there’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery.
“In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen. So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow,” she said.
