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.
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."
Due to the high risk of complications, Kardashian decided to move up her due date from Christmas Day -- when doctors originally planned on inducing labor -- to Dec. 5. North was also delivered early due to Kardashian's health concerns -- including preeclampsia -- and was born at 34 weeks.
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.
