Kourtney Kardashian is gearing up to give birth any time now and she was all set on having a water birth — until recently. The reality star was considering the water birth as it’s said to be less traumatizing to the baby and better for the mother. It was all systems go until Kourtney witnessed a water birth for herself.
Water births are just that — the mother goes in, gives birth in a tub of water and it’s done without the use of drugs. It’s supposed to be an easier transition for the baby from the womb.
Kourtney’s pal recently gave birth using this method and apparently it was enough to scare the bejesus out of Kourtney. She witnessed the water birth and the mother screamed like a crazy woman. Kourtney reportedly told friends that it was “horrific” and that it “looked brutally painful”.
Kourtney has since decided to give birth in a fancy birthing suite at Cedars Sinai Medical Center — using an epidural. Can you blame her?
