On Instagram, the reality TV star explained that she was overcome with joy and relief as her baby’s life was saved thanks to her remarkable doctors. In the caption of the post, Kourtney Kardashian also said that she was forever grateful to her husband, Travis Barker, for rushing to be by her side in the hospital and caring for her afterwards. Not to forget, she had the utmost appreciation for her mother who held her daughter’s hand amidst the storm. This long and heartfelt caption was shared underneath a heart-warming picture of her and Barker’s hands being interlocked while the Kardashian was in the hospital.

The Poosh founder further continued: “As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant. Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing.”
