Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to hire a surrogate to carry their child, considering Kardashian’s fertility problems and how pregnancy would jeopardize her health.

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” celebrity will be exhausting all the options she has to have another baby with Kanye West, Life Site News reports.

The parents of two, North West and Saint West, will opt for surrogacy to have their third kid. Kim was previously warned about the threats of another high-risk pregnancy. Hence, she and West have decided to hire a surrogate mother to carry their baby for nine months.

Expenses of a third child

Despite the fact that Kim suffers a placenta accrete, which made her previous two pregnancies life-threatening, she still wants another child to join the Kardashian-West clan.

“I think Saint and North have grown up too fast, so I miss having a baby in the family,” Kim Kardashian told the news outlet.

The couple has already hired a perfect surrogate and wants to keep things personal. Upon Kourtney Kardashian’s advice, Kim Kardashian consulted some doctors, who asserted that she would potentially experience a high-risk pregnancy. So, Kim and Kanye mutually decided to pay $45,000 in ten installments. However, the surrogate mother would receive an additional $5,000 per baby in case there are multiple pregnancies.

And if she loses her reproductive organs during pregnancy or delivery, she gets an additional $4,000.

The couple has reportedly paid a $68,850 deposit to the agency. The surrogate, on the other hand, is asked to stay away from drugs, drinking, and smoking as Kim and Kanye are not ready to compromise on the health of their third child.

Is it a safe process?

Meanwhile, in vitro fertilization is a complicated procedure of fertilization where an egg combines with sperm outside the body.

The process involves monitoring a female’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum from her ovary and letting sperms fertilize it in a liquid in a lab.

In vitro fertilization is a type of assisted reproductive technology, and the first successful birth took place in 1978. It will artificially implant embryos from Kim and Kanye into the surrogate mother’s womb. Hence, the baby will not be biologically related to the carrier.

The method has been raising various “ethical issues.” The unwanted embryos that have been created through this technique are abandoned, aborted or destroyed, especially if doctors discover that the baby has a disability. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have assumed the parental and legal responsibilities for any child – that may possess a physical or mental defect in the agreement.
