Remy Ma has been very open and honest about the losing her last child due to an ectopic pregnancy.
Thankfully, because she’s financially good- there are ways for her to maneuver around her condition.
And now she’s lending her voice to other women who might find themselves in a similar situation but may not have the means to change their situation.
As we’ve reported before, Remy Ma was carrying her child in her fallopian tubes which resulted in a miscarriage. Her doctors told her as a result, her tubes had been damaged and she would not be able to conceive naturally.
In a recent interview with Essence, she said: “First I was distraught, I was embarrassed, I was ashamed, I felt less than a woman and [the doctor] assured me that was no way to feel and that for a certain amount of thousands of dollars, it can be fixed. And because I have the finances, I never even thought twice about it.”
But that’s not the case for everyone. Realizing this fact, Remy Ma announced that she is launching a fund for women like her.
“It wasn’t until I publicly spoke about it that I realized how many women are in the same predicament as me where they actually can have children, they just need an assist from medical procedures and they can’t because they are not financially stable enough to do it.”
Procedures like in vitro fertilization can cost anywhere from $12,000 to $17,000 per treatment. According to Huffington Post, while many more women are beginning to invest in the procedure, there are still so many who can’t afford it.
During her conversation, Remy Ma even spoke about politicians and lawmakers who have been silent about issues such as these.
“It’s just weird to me that if you want to terminate a pregnancy, you could use your health insurance; however, if you wanted to conceive, health insurance doesn’t cover that. So I’m looking at all of these politicians that claim that they’re pro-life and they want to eradicate women having the choice to terminate their pregnancies, but if you’re pro-life, why would you not set up something so women who can’t conceive and women who want to be mothers can do so.”
