    Well, if you did not pass Obamacare, which destroyed and closed hundreds of rural hospital systems, then we would not be having these problems. Throwing money at the problem alone, will not fix it. Need more Doctors and Nurses, which is less likely to happen because Obamacare is driving them out, or discouraging students from going into these fields to begin with.

    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.

    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, people...are...going...to..die!

    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.

    The sky-high cost of Malpractice Insurance and the Litigious nature of the US is the main reason. OB-GYN doctors get sued far more often than any other practitioner. This has nothing to do with race, like they make everything out to be.

    Everything Trump has done in the past year, that relates to this issue. Suggests that ALL of these statistics, are only going to get worse.
    The fact that minorities are affected a lot more than whites, makes me wonder: if the statistics do get worse, would it just be by accident, or would it be by design?!
    A lot of Trump's policies involving pregnancy, seem to share a very unsettling theme. They all have the potential to reduce minority birth rates, significantly more than white birth rates!
    Furthermore, by reducing public access to birth control, and considering it in relation to the racial difference in the use of the service. Trump, could very well be trying to increase white birth rates, as well as reduce minority birth rates!
    Usually, that would sound like a crazy conspiracy theory. But, that was before the Trump age!

    I suspect that the rural hospitals are closing their wards, because illegal aliens who are required to be treated their pay nothing and then leave. Which would explain why Texas’s maternal fatality rate is so high.

    How do you make a profit out of stopping a woman bleeding to death? No experimental drugs, no hi-tech equipment, it's just not worth the effort without generating a return. That's capitalism 101. You have two solutions - a) Make sure you are born rich, white and in a city. b) become a GOP politician and have the state take care of all your medical needs.

    For me, I'm German, I do not understand at all these American christians who say they are pro life but tolerate this unbelievable high death rate in infants and mothers in the US. I do understand if you are not in favor of abortions, but first you have to take care of the already born! This is some of the things, non Americans are stunned by.
    If they want to protect life, well you have plenty to do!
    So I guess they don't care for lives, they have other motives.

And could you please stop saying that these sort of things should only happen in third world countries. First, the US is very close to become a third world country when it comes to health care,. Secondly: if there is such an emphasys on controling women's reproductive rights in your country, why arent the same control freaks freaking out at the perspective a woman can die for giving birth to a child?

    Thank you for highlighting this serious problem. I have been trying to drum up support for a US house bill that would fund state panels to help address this problem. In November 2016 my niece passed away shortly after giving birth due to severe bleeding. I believe if precautions had been in place she would still be with us today. Tragically a mother and daughter will now never know each other. This doesn't have to happen!
