Kourtney Kardashian On Why She Won’t Have A Home Birth: ‘There’s Too Much Risk Involved’

The pregnant Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has explained that she feels safer giving birth to her third child in a hospital

She's due to give birth to her third child with partner Scott Disick in December and Kourtney Kardashian is busy making plans. Including her birth plan, which includes a hospital and (hopefully) a calm environment.

The reality star reveals she doesn’t want a home birth and has opted for a hospital because it’s ‘smarter and safer,’ she says.

‘I witnessed a home birth with my sister Khloe and, after seeing it, I felt it wasn’t for me,’ says the oldest Kardashian sibling in Fit Pregnancy magazine. ‘There was too much risk involved and it wasn’t as sanitary as a hospital.’

Kourtney famously filmed her nearly five-year-old son Mason’s birth for KUWTK but says that she doesn’t want as many people surrounding her this time around.

‘I really want a calm environment, and with too many people in the room, it’s hard to focus on what’s going on,’ says Kourtney. ‘This time I think I’ll have some calming music. Just no candles – I don’t want any fire situations.’

Also different this time around will be the lack of baby nurse, once her third child arrives. ‘I’m not getting a baby nurse,’ says Kourtney. ‘I take two months off and no one is allowed to bother me or talk to me about anything work related – or maybe three months this time.’
