The Exciting Shared Statement…

Khloe and her boyfriend said on the news: “We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November. Khloe is incredibly grateful to the great surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family”.  

According to many sources, there are medical conditions behind her decision, and there were reasons that factored into her decision to use surrogacy; not putting such a strain on her body was a huge motivation.

Khloe Kardashian Was Warned With A High-Risk Pregnancy

To know why the youngest Kardashian and his boyfriend decided to use a surrogate to have another child, you need to go back to the final season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (in march 2021). Khloe revealed that her specialists told her she would have a high-risk pregnancy if she chose to carry a second baby. 

They said there was more than an 80% chance of a miscarriage. Khloe almost miscarried her daughter True at the beginning, but luckily it didn’t happen. 

 

Kim Kardashian Encouraged Her To Try Surrogacy

Khloe was unsure about trying surrogacy but received support from her sister Kim (who had two of their children through a surrogate), who told her that the experience was beautiful to achieve her dream. “There’s no difference except that someone else was the carrier.”

To better understand the procedure, you need to know about surrogacy.

What Is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a treatment where, through an altruistic act, a woman agrees to have a baby in her womb, and once the baby is born, it would be given to a couple or person who wants to add a new member to their family.

How Does Surrogacy Work?

In most surrogacy cases, the eggs and sperm of those seeking to become parents are used to form the baby. In some cases, it may be that the pregnant woman also contributes her genetics through egg donation. However, the correct situation is that she contributes only to the uterus to maintain the pregnancy and give birth to a baby with the characteristics of the parents.

The fertilization and implantation of the embryo are carried out through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Once the baby is born, the surrogate mother must assign her rights, renounce motherhood and deliver it to the person or couple responsible for it.

Types Of Surrogacy

There are two types of surrogacy:

  • Traditional surrogacy. The gestation is done through artificial insemination (with the father’s sperm). However, it could also be an IVF with the pregnant woman’s eggs.
  • Gestational surrogacy. Unlike the traditional method, the gestant does not give her eggs to create the embryo. Still, they come from the future mother or, in certain cases, from a donor previously chosen.

When Is Surrogacy Necessary?

Most people who resort to surrogacy are couples who find themselves in situations such as:

  • The low success rate in IVF
  • Miscarriages
  • Alterations in the uterus,
  • Absence of a uterus.

On the other hand, single men and LGBT male couples access surrogacy since the method allows their future children to have similarities to them since they can provide sperm.

What Is Needed To Surrogate?

  • Between 25 and 35 years old (the ideal age for a pregnancy).
  • Pass a psychological evaluation
  • Eliminate the consumption of alcoholic beverages
  • Pass studies to verify a good state of health
