Remy Ma To Start Fertility Fund For Women Who Can’t Conceive Naturally

Remy Ma Plans To Start Her Own Organization To Help Women Who Can’t Conceive Naturally

After enduring a heartbreaking miscarriage, due to an ectopic pregnancy–also known as ‘tubal pregnancy’, Remy Ma has decided to start a fertility fund for women who can’t conceive children naturally. The 37-year-old rapper revealed the disturbing news of her recent miscarriage, earlier this year, during an episode of Love & Hip Hop: New York. 

Since her loss, Remy has learned that she can, in fact, still bear children through alternative fertility resources. However, though she is financially set enough to get the help that she needs to do so, there are still so many women who aren’t as fortunate to take advantage of the resources available. After extensive research and dealing with the emotional distress from such a tragic loss, Remy hopes to change that.

In an interview with Essence Magazine, she opened up about her own experience and expressed her disappointment in the inadequacy of health insurance for these types of situations, which happens to be her reason for planning to start her own organization.

“The problem that I see has to deal with women who want to or trying to, or, either, cannot conceive–and this is something that was brought to my attention due to my own situation,” she states. “I had a child when I was very young; I was a teenager. I didn’t even consider having any more children until I was married, with my husband, and we got pregnant. We were very excited; we were very happy about it and didn’t find out until it was too late that it was an ectopic pregnancy.”

As for any woman, any mother, losing a child is never easy. Remy says that, after finding out that her fallopian tubes had been damaged, she felt a variety of emotions.

“First, I was distraught, I was embarrassed, I was ashamed,” Remy confessed. “I felt less than a woman and [the doctor] assured me that was no way to feel, and 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. I was like, ‘Alright, how many thousands? Okay, no problem. We’ll start doing it right now.’”

However, when Remy spoke about her reproductive complications publicly, she says that she gained a whole new outlook, realizing just how many other women were experiencing the same issue, if not worse.

“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, you know, medical procedures and they can’t because they are not financially stable enough to do it,” she said. “It was just weird to me that if you wanted to terminate a pregnancy, you could use your health insurance. However, if you wanted to conceive, health insurance didn’t cover that.”

She then goes on to explain that this is something that she is very passionate about and is striving to provide financial assistance to women in need through her future fund.

As of now, we’re not sure as to when things will kick off for Remy’s fund, but we’re quite sure that it’s on the agenda for sometime soon.

Much respect and love to Remy for letting her voice be heard! Every woman deserves the opportunity to become a mother. No amount of money should stop her from doing so.
