Remy Ma has reportedly been rushed to the hospital just days after welcoming first child with her husband, rapper Papoose.
TMZ reports that the Bronx emcee was suffering from excessive bleeding on Tuesday night and returned to the hospital for treatment.
According to an Instagram post from her husband, Remy endured “a tough labor” to bring “the Golden Child” into the world last Friday.
“After overcoming such a tough labor/delivery! My wife breast feeds our child, around the clock. I’m so amazed by her strength, courage & motherly touch,” Papoose wrote. “Thank you babe! This is all a dream come true! #TheGoldenChild Daddy got you forever. You are the definition of beauty.”
While the procedure was a success, Remy Ma’s ordeal is sadly not unique for Black women. According to reports, Black women are not only more likely to suffer complications during and after childbirth, they are more likely to pass away after having a baby too.
The U.S. has the worst maternal mortality rate in the developed world, and many are looking for ways to address the issue. Over the summer, Senator Kamala Harris introduced the Maternal CARE Act, which aims to reduce racial bias in healthcare.
“Black women in America are three to four times more like to die than white women because they choose to become mothers and want to raise those children to be productive members of society,” Sen. Harris said recently. “At its core, one of the biggest parts of the problem is that this is an issue that’s about race.”
Despite the frightening incident, Remy Ma, whose birth name is Reminisce Mackie, is back resting and bonding with her baby where she belongs.
We wish her a quick and complete recovery!
