"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," she shared. "I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear."

Kourtney said the experience gave her "a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant."
