Kim Kardashian has revealed that her baby son is breech.
The 35-year-old penned a blog post entitled Heads Up! earlier this week, which explained that she may end up needing a C-section when she gives birth to her second child.
Kim – who already has two-year-old daughter North with her husband Kanye West – is currently 36 weeks pregnant, and admits that she’s feeling ‘a little anxious’ about the delivery.
She wrote: ‘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. So now, I will have to get a C-section. Or so I thought!
‘Since my baby is pretty big – over 7 pounds – maybe he’s just too big at this point but I started intensive chiropractic work with Dr. Elliot Berlin.
‘He is “the” pregnancy chiropractor! I’ve learned so much from my few sessions with him. I have been doing everything I can to try to turn the baby. I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes.
‘I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started acupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!’
Despite her troubles, Kim is still hoping for a natural birth.

She continued: ‘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.
‘Paul was my mom’s doctor and delivered me! So I know I’m in the best care.
‘Please wish me luck and pray the baby turns! This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I’m prepared for anything!’
Good luck, Kim.
