The Doctors: Kim Kardashian Placenta Accreta
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their second child, but according to sources, the birth wasn’t an easy one. Allegedly Kim Kardashian was diagnosed with a placenta condition called Placenta Accreta. Normally the placenta sits inside the uterine cavity and after the delivery it detaches and comes out. Accreta means the placenta and its blood vessels bury itself into the uterine cavity wall, making it difficult to detach, which could cause a hemorrhage or even call for an emergency hysterectomy. It happens in about one in every 2,500 pregnancies which means it’s practically a medical emergency and all medical professionals need to be prepared.
