In a video interview with Essence, Remy said her organization will assist women who are like me or have a similar situation to me, but they cant afford it, could possibly get these procedures done and have children, because as a woman, thats one of the things that you can do that no other being can do.

Once Remy learned of her condition, the doctor said natural childbirth might prove far too dangerous given the condition of her fallopian tubes. First I was distraught, I was embarrassed, I was ashamed, I felt less than a woman and [the doctor] assured me that was no way to feel and that for a certain amount of thousands of dollars, it can be fixed, she said. And because I have the finances, I never even thought twice about it.

In January, the All The Way Up rapper published a statement on her Instagram account about her ectopic pregnancy and how shell continue to power through. This was a hard time for me & my husband & we thought long and hard before deciding to share this part of our lives with you all, she wrote. so Im here to tell anyone going thru a similar situation that it is not over and God has the last say so.

So many women have been through the same thing, and I realized that in-vitro is minimum $15,000 or $20,000, easily, she said. Theres no cheaper route. I have the money, so I didnt think about it, but the average woman that this happens to doesnt have that kind of money.
