Why do so many African American women die giving birth in US?
It’s no longer hidden that so many african american women die almost on daily basis during child bearing in the US. Just recently a mother, Patricia Shepherd of the victim said “mentally and physically, she was perfectly fine and she died in a hospital”, crying in agony for her lost daughter.
First of all she was a daughter, Domaniek was a sister, she was a mum. She was a beautiful black woman. She was a star that was zapped out of this world.
Domaniek had complications after giving birth to her son, Kollin. She
suffered massive blood loss. The hospital said they did everything they
could and she died of rare complications. She never woke up. She didn’t give
her family a chance to say anything to her. They saw her pass-on for the family to come and view. The family felt the hospital could have given a better explanation of what happened.
“More women are gonna die, I mean it’s just that simple if we don’t get a handle on this and turn it around, then more women are going to die,” were the words of Darline Turner, Pregnancy and Child Companion. She added that if african american women are dying 3 times the rate, then they have to look specifically into what this group is all about.
Even with seasoned medical specialist around, it’s very difficult to believe that such could happen. As maternity mortality rate is decreasing in developed countries, the reverse is the case in America. Some say, it’s worse in the US than under-developed countries.
A lot of campaigners say access to medical care is the cause of the problem. Hmm! Could it be that Barrack Obama made policies that affected access to medical facility in America? What is the world actually turning into?
According to BBC, Texas is the state with the highest rate of maternal mortality, it’s also the state with the highest proportion of people without health insurance. But Dr. John Hellerstedt, Texas Health Commissioner denies the allegation. He says the trend for increase chronic disease is really the fundamental underlined cause for the increase in maternity mortality rate.
Doctors keep telling the mothers of victims, life goes on after death. The fact is that if there is no real sense of urgency many more african american women will die. Donald Trump needs to wake up from his slumber.
Now Obama has gone, what then is Donald Trump doing to salvage the situation? Obviously african american women are most affected by this saga.
