Kim Kardashian has been vocal about her wish to have another baby with Kanye West but is she decreasing her chances?

She’s made no secret of her desire to have a second child, after welcoming a daughter with rapper husband Kanye West in June 2013.

But Kim Kardashian could be ruining her chances of giving North West a little sibling according to a health expert.

Dr Sue Decotiis, who specialises in medical weight loss in New York, claims that this is because the 34-year-old has been wearing a waist training corset to get her pre-pregnancy body back. She alleged the corset may be constricting fat to certain areas, which could result in tissues in her body weakening due to constricted blood flow.

Doesn’t sound too healthy to us!

However gynecologic specialist Dr Lauren Streicher told the MailOnline that it would make no difference to her getting pregnant or getting through her first trimester smoothly.

The comments come as the reality star continued to promote the benefits of donning the midriff-cinching item on her social networking accounts.

This time Kim took to Twitter to show how she prepares for photoshoots that involve showing her trim tummy off.

‘On set using my @premadonna87’s waist trainer before I shoot! #premadonna87 is my fave! @pre_shop #waistgangsociety,’ she captioned a mirror selfie.

In a snap she posted later, Kim revealed what great shape she’s in by removing the tight piece she wears underneath her clothing.

‘Ready for my close up!’
she wrote alongside the picture.

Stars including actress Jessica Alba and Kanye‘s model ex Amber Rose have also publicised their love of waist trainers.

Apparently women have been using this method to stay in shape since the 1500s, even during pregnancy, so we can’t see Kim – who has been sharing photos of herself wearing the corset since August 2014 – quitting the trend anytime soon.

The upcoming Season 10 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is expected to document her struggle to conceive baby number two. It airs in March on E!.
