Sounding The Alarm On The Country's Maternal Health Crisis | MSNBC

  1. STOP HAVING KIDS! THE PLANET CANT SUPPORT IT there’s your alarm

  2. I hope MOD’s has changed their ways. Several years ago, while working on a fund raiser for them, I attended a luncheon they sponsored. At the time, I was about 8 months pregnant, very obviously pregnant. They spiked the punch with alcohol but no one said a word about it. I have never supported them since. Why would an organization like that need to spike the punch anyway?

  3. But by all means stay silent on the paternal crisis that’s persisted for decades now. You know, or the misandry problem this country has.

  4. My very good friend died in the hospital two days after having given birth. She continually complained of intense pain, a type of pain that she had not suffered with her first delivery. The physicians kept telling her that the pain was from having given birth. Her heart finally gave out and she died of cardiac arrest. She had sepsis throughout her body from a ruptured pancreas, I believe. I honestly don’t remember what ruptured inside of her.

    I had a C-section and my physician accidentally cut into an artery in my uterus. I almost bled out. Mine was an accident, I get it. Accidents happen. My friends medical emergency wasn’t. She should have been trusted and tests should have been performed. She didn’t need to die…

  5. My daughter’s last doctor was crack pot and because of that she almost lost her life giving birth to my last grandchild and will never be able to have another child because they had to do an emergency hysterectomy

  6. america is the 17th highest maternity death rate in the world not developed world, world period. thats absolutely unacceptable!

  7. Proper schools and hospitals need to be built in the lower income areas as well. Facilities like these are the basic infrastructure that’s important in all areas of any country

  8. We are constantly hearing claims of how black and brown people are being disproportionately affected by one thing or another, but I rarely hear why. Everything is attributed to racism. I hate that. It’s become way too easy a claim to make, to be a victim.

    How about if all y’all make these claims, explain why. For instance, why the higher mortality rate in black/brown births? Is it because there is a lack of prenatal care? That couldn’t be the case in California, because there are an abundance of services available for low or zero fees. Mobile units are available to go into various neighborhoods. There are bus lines that travel all over.

    So what’s the dealio? Is it that women just don’t seek the care? Is it a lack of education of black/brown women, for the need for prenatal care? Give me real reasons other than your idea of white racists.

  9. Crises crises crises after crises crises crises

    It never ends, does it?

    Well, for some, crises and issue are just words for buisness
