Mother and son are doing well,” Kim announced on her website It must have come as such a relief for the reality star after she had a complicated pregnancy where her baby ended up in the breach position, which would have required a cesarean section birth that she desperately wanted to avoid. Check out Kim and her family on Keeping Up With The Kardashians via Amazon NOW!

The reality star underwent a painful procedure to get her son’s position back in place in her uterus, which she revealed shortly after Thanksgiving. She shared with fans that doctors were able to manually turn the baby from a breach 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! 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!!! My baby is in the right position and it feels so good to not have the stress of thinking I need a C-section.”

We’re so thrilled the delivery went well and that mother, son and proud papa Kanye are all doing well! Congratulations to the happy family.
