Kim Kardashian West has posted an article on her website where she reveals the story behind her third child, letting us know that using a surrogate / gestational carrier instead of carrying her third child herself was not an easy way out.
She wrote “People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint. It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give. The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time. Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true”
I think surrogate or gestational carriers as some are known as are truly angels in disguise and I applaud anyone that has been able to do it and can now bear that title. You are most definitely underrated.
