Kim Kardashian's Son Is No Longer Breech Following Hospital Procedure to Turn Him

Pin It
Good news for Kim Kardashian! The 35-year-old revealed last week that her son was breech and that she might have to have an emergency C-section. "He is in the wrong position for childbirth," she told E! News. "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."

Despite all of the things she had tried, he still wasn't turning, but Kim was holding out hope that he would - and he did! Following a painful hospital procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version), Kim's son is now pointed in the direction of his possible namesake - South!

"This weekend, I checked into the hospital and underwent a procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version), which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position," she explained in a new post on her website. "There was a risk that my water might break or the baby's heart rate could drop—in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place."

Fortunately, it didn't and they didn't need to do that - so baby West is now just chillin' in the perfect position until he's ready to make his appearance.
