Kim Kardashian West's baby is no longer breech

KIM Kardashian West's baby is no longer breech.

The reality TV star is due to give birth to her second child later this month and underwent a medical procedure over the weekend to have the baby turned to a head-down position.

She wrote on her website "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

"They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby. 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. I went in with my sisters and my husband. I was prepared for it all! (sic)"

While the procedure was a success, Kim, 35 - who already has a daughter North, two, with husband Kanye West - admitted it was extremely painful.

She added: "They don't give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful. Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!! (sic)"
