Details about Kevin Gates’ Leaked Tape of Woman Giving Home Birth on His Instagram Story
The video, showed the woman bent over a table with her legs spread, while a man held her waist area for support. The baby’s head was visible as it emerged from the mother’s body, followed by the rest of its body and the placenta. The woman wasn’t screaming, but appeared to be in agony.
Gates did not provide any context or explanation for the video, nor did he reveal the identity of the woman or the man. The video sparked mixed reactions from Gates’ fans and critics, who took to Twitter to express their opinions. Some praised him for showing the beauty and reality of natural birth, while others criticized him for violating the woman’s privacy and exposing her to potential infections. Some also questioned the legality and safety of delivering a baby at home without any medical professionals.
Home births have been on the rise in the United States in recent years, reaching the highest level since at least 1990. According to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), there were 51,642 home births in 2021, an increase of 13% from 2020 and 34% from 2019. This means that about 1.4% of all births in 2021 occurred at home.
The percentage of home births varied by race and Hispanic origin, month, and state of residence. In 2021, (non-Hispanic) White women had the highest percentage of home births (2.1%), followed by (non-Hispanic) Black women (0.82%) and Hispanic women (0.55%). The percentage of home births peaked in January 2021 at 1.51%, and then declined slightly in the following months. The percentage of home births increased in 30 states from 2020 to 2021, with West Virginia having the largest increase (49%) and Florida having the smallest increase (8%).
The reasons for choosing home birth are diverse and may include personal preference, cultural or religious beliefs, cost, convenience, or dissatisfaction with hospital care. However, home birth also carries some risks, such as increased perinatal mortality and morbidity, especially for women with high-risk pregnancies or complications during labor and delivery.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that women who plan a home birth should have a certified nurse–midwife, certified midwife, or physician attending the birth; have access to a nearby hospital; and have a plan for emergency transport.
Home birth is a complex and controversial issue that involves medical, ethical, legal, and social aspects. As the U.S. birth rate continues to decline , it is important to monitor the trends and outcomes of home births and to ensure that women who choose this option receive safe and quality care. That’s is why many people are worried about the health of the mother and baby after seeing Kevin Gates’ leaked tape on his IG story.
