Kim Kardashian West revealed on the podcast All’s Fair With Laura Wasser, that she used a 'surrogate therapist' when she first went through the process of surrogacy to have daughter Chicago.

E! News, who reported the exclusive ahead of the episode which airs February 11, shared that the business mogul and reality-tv star was encouraged to find a therapist by her surrogate broker. The therapist would 'communicate with [Kim] first and then communicate with [our surrogate] and kind of be our liaison'

In previous interviews before Chicago was born, Kardashian West talked about how difficult the surrogacy process can be. After two difficult births with North (aged 6) and Saint (aged 4) where she suffered from placenta accreta, a doctor recommended that she use a surrogate, also known as a gestational carrier, as the child is biologically Kim and Kanye’s. She told Ellein 2018 'The control is hard at the beginning. Once you let that go, it’s the best experience. I would recommend surrogacy for anybody'

The therapist was a tool to help with that. Kardashian West also said “[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],' She added, 'Towards the end we got close enough where we could communicate really without that.'

Kardashian and West also the therapist as a way of making sure everybody felt heard and to reconcile any potential questions re: the birthing plan. 'She would be that buffer to say, ‘This is who I want in the room. What are you comfortable with? How does this work?’'

While the couple used a surrogacy therapist ahead of the birth of Chicago, they felt one wasn’t necessary for the arrival of Psalm, (who was also delivered via gestational carrier) the newest addition to the Kardashian West family. As Kardashian West tells Wasser, she 'knew the drill' by then.
