    So that's why my mom want's me to have children, so she can collect the life insurance she pays on me AND have a baby to "raise". I see her plan now.

      Nicolle Herr I'm sorry your mom hates you. My mom wants me to have a baby because she thinks I'm "missing out" on her dreams of marriage and motherhood. I personally think she's missing out on a self esteem.

    Samantha, you don't have to be 'rural' to not have hospital maternity care. My daughter lives in Warsaw Indiana and the neraest hospital is in Fort Wayne Indiana. When labort started in the middle of the night she had to drive 50 miles down an icy highway in order to make it to the hospital in time for the delivery. thie lack of maternal medical care is a NATIONAL problem not just a Rrual problem
    and BTW
    you may want to ALSO cover the lack of good child care and the rate of mortality in child care facilities. YEP
    In Indiana there is an EPIDEMIC of Children DYING in Childcare facilities - including 'home based ones'

    You know if men were the ones who got pregnant, this would definitely not be an issue. This country has always hated women.

    Thanks for caring enough to mention it. The hospital I gave birth at was 58mins away. I assumed that was normal. Only medical problems that “directly affect the baby” were covered by my “pregnancy only Medicaid”. (Mississippi-we had ACA at one point which I met the income limit for and had for about a month but then it got blocked/ended right before I found out I was 2 months pregnant. )

    And one would think that childbirth is such a common medical situation the healthcare system would know what to do (think about Padme's death as one of the things that didn't make sense about the Star Wars prequels)

  • Alan Gilfoy

    Maternal mortality rate is a particularly aggravating example of the US' flawed healthcare system because death in childbirth is thought of as a medieval relic.

    That's the problem with America. We care more about marginal corporate profits than people's quality of life. This notion that conglomerates making money is more important than saving lives and living well is killing our nation and killing our citizens.

    This is should be on the agenda of either party, or should be spoken of by the candidates. One of them should grab this on their platform or plank of issues. I've heard about this problem for 10 years now.

    We should let the South rise again.

  • Chris

    The South's population was small until the widespread adoption of A/C. That combined with the massive obesity rates below the Mason Dixon Line is the reason The United States is low in any metrics.

    So, as a bright light in all of this, I can tell you that emergency medical providers are trained to protect the mother first and then tend to the baby. I don't know if that helps any of you feel better, but it's the truth.

    Couldn't possibly be related to states defunding Planned Parenthood, not expanding Medicaid under the ACA, or making abortions near impossible to get.
    All elections matter people, get out and vote every November!

    Talk about austerities. Do you know how much money they save in southern abortion clinics convincing women not to have the abortive operation? Conservatism is crazy like a fox.

  • L. Harrison

    All those fake stories against PlannedParenthood & GOP legislations have eliminated most rural community clinics. Hospitals closing because they might be able to offer abortions as part of family planning is the 1 of many mortal sins I see.

  • Eden Thaw

    Baby boomers and others that love to trash on millennials have been up in arms that we are showing a trend of many not having kids. Maybe instead of just just throwing a fit to make our 've station look bad, realize that we have the access to data that proves to us it's not worth the price or the risk and do something about it!
    As someone who always saw themselves becoming a mother I will do everything in my power to not have kids until I feel like my life will be looked after and treated with care instead of being treated as a disposable incubator.

    Corrections (since they seem to have fired their editors):
    100% of people having births is not applicable to this discussion. 100% of babies are not born in hospitals.
    Planned Parenthood does not deliver babies. The reference is unimportant.
    Did no-one notice that the most spread out states have the highest mortality rates? This is a question of population distribution, economics, and geology, not some silly conspiracy.

    I'd feel bad if it wasn't red areas who didn't want healthcare in the first place suffering from this.

    This video is like looking at a single thread of a tapestry. Rural areas are underserved across the board, not just in maternal care. It's a conversation that needs to be had but is often overlooked. From my experience, part of the problem is that people in urban areas get a lot more media and governmental attention, and they tend to think of people in rural areas as some sort of abstract other.

    Poor and middle class CONservatives are the most likely people to vote against their own best interest. They keep voting CONservatives into office and their lives just keep getting worse. There is always a CON in CONservative and the right wing CONs have CONned you.

    The high liability and malpractice rates in our sue happy society cause a lot of OBs to leave the field or decline to specialize in this. I work in healthcare and those that live in rural areas do struggle to access services. Sometimes it is thier choice but also cheaper to live. We can do much better than this, but GOP is against women and healthcare, just for business and profit. But rural people vote GOP, so sad.

  • Alexia Tr

    One fact they are not mentioning here is that the number of doctors available are diminishing, and although they get paid huge bonuses to live in rural areas, they don't want to live in small towns. One of the reasons there is not many doctors anymore is because it is very expensive to become one, the huge amount of debt is huge and it may take a long time to pay for it. Most of them are going for nurse practitioner or physician assistant because it's cheaper and faster, but in most states they have to be under a doctor.

  • justmemadison
    justmemadison 9 months ago

    Anyone noticing a trend? The only statistics where the US is number one in the world are horrendous: number of people locked up, number of people dying because they don't have access to affordable healthcare, number of gun deaths, and mother's dying during child birth. Oh, and the fact that we pay more than any other country for all the things we are failing at. I wonder how long before people start paying attention to what's happening in this country.

    Have men considered that it is not just a woman issue? That it is a man issue too? These women are your partners and they are carrying your children that you helped to make. Men should be out there campaigning alongside women. As Samantha said, babies are the only way that new humans are made. Women are precious.

    india is even worse so nice lies. Oh and heres a nice fact take in that most women spit out babies as fast as possible for welfare and then they dont pay the hospitals for maturnal care thats the reason they close and thats the reason yall are called libtards who are trying to destroy our statues which are only offensive to snowflakes. Also a lot of blacks do have more babies for welfare.

    The Mayo Clinic is creating more of problem in southern Minnesota by closing the Labor & Delivery unit at the Albert Lea Hospital (they are also closing the ICU and in-patient surgery unit, too.) The L&D is being moved to Austin, 23 miles away. 55,000 people in 3 counties rely on the Albert Lea hospital. And as a retired state trooper said, without a Full Service Acute care hospital in Albert Lea, when the weather gets nasty and the interstate is closed,!

    Surely this is the kind of truly important issue that your First Lady (and I use that term advisedly) should be taking front and centre to support. Maybe instead of looking like a roo caught in the spotlight whenever we see her in the media, she should be using her position to make maternal health at least as good as other first world nations.
