Pregnancy is empowering, says Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian's pregnancy experience has been "empowering".
The 44-year-old beauty has taken to social media to share some new photos of her growing baby bump, after she was recently forced to undergo urgent fetal surgery to save her baby's life.
Kourtney - who is expecting her first child with her husband Travis Barker - captioned the images on Instagram: "pregnancy is so empowering (sic)"
In the photos, Kourtney is seen cradling her baby bump while she adopts various poses for the camera.
The brunette beauty - who already has Mason, 13, Penelope, ten, and Reign, eight, with her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick - recently revealed that she required urgent surgery in order to save her baby's life.
Kourtney - who married Travis in 2022 - wrote on Instagram at the time: "I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this.
"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. [prayer and heart emojis] (sic)"
