Kim Kardashian has revealed she used a surrogacy therapist to make sure she bonded with her daughter, Chicago West.

The reality star, 39, carried her first two children, North and Saint West, but due to suffering from placenta accreta during her pregnancies, she was told it would be risky to her health to carry any more children.

Her third and fourth children, Chicago and Psalm West, were born via surrogate, and Kim revealed what she went through before they were born.

She told Laura Wasser’s All’s Fair podcast: ‘You get your surrogate attorney, you get your surrogate broker. Then the broker recommended that we use a therapist that would communicate with me first and then communicate with [our surrogate] and kind of be our liaison.’

Kim revealed that the therapist suggest ways she and her husband Kanye West could get to know the woman who would be carrying their child.

She added: ‘Towards the end we got close enough where we could communicate really without that, [but the therapist] would suggest, “Hey, I think you guys should communicate once a week through text, maybe on Mother’s Day. She’s a mother as well. Maybe get her a massage or something that’s appropriate for her to pamper her”.

‘Things like going through the birthing plan, so if anything was uncomfortable, she would be that buffer to say, “This is who I want in the room. What are you comfortable with? How does this work?”’

Kim revealed that she only used the therapist for Chicago’s birth, but didn’t need it for her son Psalm as she ‘knew the drill’.

She also revealed that both of the surrogates they used were happy to have Kanye involved in the process, explaining: ‘Both surrogates that we used were very comfortable with Kanye being involved any way he wanted to be.

‘For the first surrogate, we both met her and then met her husband and their kids came over to our house. She had two younger kids, so we felt a really good vibe from the start. I felt like the second time I felt like, “Oh, I got this.”’

Although Kanye wasn’t in the delivery room for either children being born, he was present and waiting to meet them after the delivery.

Kim had been open about her reasons for using a surrogate, after being told that any more pregnancies would be dangerous to her health and having had ‘five different operations to fix the damage that all of that did on the inside’ after having her son Saint.
