It appears Kim Kardashian's second pregnancy might have been just as tough as her first.
While Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed a healthy baby boy named Saint on Saturday, a source confirmed to ET that the 35-year-old reality star dealt with the same complications during labor that she faced when she delivered daughter North in 2013.
Kardashian suffered from placenta accreta, a condition in which the placenta remains attached to the wall of the uterus, instead of coming out after the birth of the baby, People reports.
According to a post Kardashian wrote on her website earlier this month, the same thing occurred when she gave birth to North. Kardashian revealed that her doctor "had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails."
Another pregnancy concern arose a few weeks ago when doctors informed Kardashian that her son was breech, and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star had to undergo a painful procedure to turn her unborn son around in utero.
Despite the multitude of challenges and complications, Kardashian successfully gave birth to a healthy baby boy, weighing 8 pounds and 1 ounce, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
