Earlier this year, 2017 ESSENCE Fest artist Remy Ma gave fans and the world a first-hand look at her painful experience with miscarrying a child on a heartbreaking episode of Love and Hip Hop New York.

While the miscarriage was one of the most difficult experiences Remy and her husband Papoose have had to face, the couple’s brave decision to share the deeply personal tragedy served as an inspiration to many other couples who have gone through, or are currently going through, something similar. 

Remy stopped by the ESSENCE offices recently and weighed in on an eye-opening healthcare issue that hit home for her in the wake of her devastating loss, along with how she hopes to use her platform to help alleviate the problem.

Hear what she had to say in the video above.
