Kourtney Kardashian Shares Details of ‘Traumatic’ Emergency Fetal Surgery

In a candid revelation, Kourtney Kardashian has opened up about the “trauma” she experienced during her emergency fetal surgery, shedding light on a challenging chapter of her pregnancy journey.

During the Season 5 premiere of “The Kardashians,” filmed when Kardashian was 31 weeks pregnant, she recounted the harrowing experience. Initially planning a scan at home for her children to see the baby, Kardashian’s plans took a sudden turn when a high-risk doctor noticed something concerning during the scan.

Describing the situation as “terrifying,” Kourtney Kardashian revealed that she was promptly referred to specialists for further evaluation. While she didn’t specify the exact issue, she emphasized that it was a “super rare thing” and reassured viewers that it wasn’t age-related or a result of any wrongdoing on her part.

The reality star underwent surgery while still pregnant, requiring her to adhere to strict bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy. Detailing the aftermath of the procedure, Kardashian explained the limitations she faced, including restrictions on driving and standing for extended periods.

During her hospital stay, Kardashian’s husband, Travis Barker, stood by her side despite being on tour with his band, Blink-182. Barker’s dedication to supporting his wife, despite challenges with communication due to a broken Wi-Fi connection, highlighted the couple’s unwavering commitment to each other during difficult times.

Reflecting on the experience, Kourtney Kardashian expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support from her followers after she shared the scare publicly. She acknowledged the stigma and fear that often accompany discussions about pregnancy complications and encouraged others to speak openly about their experiences.

Ultimately, Kardashian and Barker welcomed their baby boy, Rocky, into the world in November 2023, marking a joyous conclusion to a challenging period. With Kardashian’s openness about her journey, she hopes to inspire others to navigate similar challenges with courage and resilience.

As “The Kardashians” continues to unfold, viewers can expect further insights into Kardashian’s life and experiences, offering a glimpse into the realities of pregnancy and motherhood.
