'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Sneak Peek: Kourtney Contemplates Water Birth (VIDEO)

Kim to Kourt: Congrats!
Kim Kardashian congratulates sister Kourtney on baby No. 2! Read More »

On Sunday's episode of E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a pregnant Kourtney Kardashian tells her sisters Kim and Khloe that she's planning to give birth at home in the company of friends and family.

"[Everyone could] sit on the couch in my bedroom," the 33-year-old Hollywood mom explains to her siblings, adding that her two-year-old son Mason would be present.

How did they react?

"Do you want to traumatize your son?" asks Khloe, making a face.

"He's going to be traumatized for life," Kim adds. "He's going to think you're getting murdered."

Of course -- spoiler alert -- Kourtney ended up delivering her second child -- daughter Penelope Scotland -- at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on July 8.

“Scott and I are overjoyed to welcome our precious angel Penelope Scotland Disick into our lives," Kourtney said soon after the birth. "We are forever blessed. Mommy and baby are resting comfortably."

    All of these comments against homebirth are assuming that a qualified professional is NOT ATTENDING. Midwives are qualified to administer CPR, respond to mother bleeding and emergencies, and aren't an unskilled professional. They come with everything ready to respond to a birth emergency. It's a choice, not selfish at all.

    I see where Jen is coming from, you could have a really good pregnancy all fine and dandy and when its time to give birth anything could go wrong! I have seen numerous stories about home birth deaths that could have quite possibly been avoided if the mother was at a hospital :( I feel that if that's what you want then sure go for but I know I would feel guilty if I lost my child (at home) and it could have been a different situation (possibly) at a hospital. You just never know Gods plan, but I personally would rather have all the equipment necessary around If the worst was to happen.

    i believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion but calling someone selfish who is about to undergo a home birth is quite possibly as low as you can go. I am very sure Martha has given the risks a huge amount of consideration and is doing, as she should be, what feels right for her. If you feel the need to call someone ridiculous then at least ensure that your facts are up to date. If the woman has had a healthy normal pregnancy and is not expecting multiples then a home birth carries no more risk than a hospital birth, equal amounts of death or severe illness arise from them both.

    Please Please tell Bruce Jenner to stop talking with his mouth full of food! Almost every time he has a little dialogue on camera, he's put food in his mouth and talking. It is the most annoying and rudest thing. I would change the channel but my roommate is addicted to the show.

    I myself have given birth to 3 children, 2 using gas and air and one with an epidural which was my last one. This was the worst decision i have ever made regarding childbirth. The epidural took away all my senses which made the birth much more difficult. Having to be told when to push is very very unnatural and makes the whole process take longer. Childbirth is not meant to be enjoyable which is why they refer to it as labour. Many many women have given birth before things such as epidurals came about. Pain is required when in labour to tell your body what to do, i would never recommend anyone to have an epidural.

    Martha you are ridiculous.... I'm not an expert on child birth or anything but home birthing is more dangerous than a hospital birth... If the mother doesn't want drugs she has a choice it's not like the doctors are forcing them down her throat... Any number of things can go wrong when giving birth like excessive bleeding, cord strangulation etc..... If your in your home there is no access to the equipment that will save a persons life in the event of an emergency. Being so selfish as to having your child at home is horrible you never know what's gonna happen and if anything goes wrong and you didn't do all that was possible (like be at a hospital) to try and help your baby well that's gonna be on your conscience!

    Kim I would have reacted the same way you did. "No epidural?" O: I'm really big on everyone making their own decisions, etc, etc. But childbirth is the worst natural pain a human can go through. My mom is an OBGYN and I'm sorry but you are quite literally insane if you want to experience childbirth without an epidural. I FULLY RESPECT YOU, but you are a bit crazy. How could you, willingly, push a baby through your vagina, have it rip, and enjoy it? RIP, RIP THROUGH YOUR SKIN AND MUSCLE! D: I just do not get it. But to each their own.

    this is sad, she should had a home birth. I'm having one. The hospital is not the place to have a baby, and drugs and other medical interventions are horrible for the woman and child. smh
