Angelina Jolie is opening up about giving birth to her daughter Shiloh in Africa and the struggles that other women in that region go through during childbirth.
The 41-year-old actress appeared on BBC Radio 4′s Women’s Hour on Friday morning (June 17) and talked about how these problems in Africa can be easily fixed.
“I went to a hospital in Namibia, where I was having my daughter, and I was in breech. I needed a C-section, and I knew I was in breach because I had had the money to have an ultrasound,” Angelina said. “But I found even the local hospital with many, many women – and this was a good hospital – did not have an ultrasound machine.”
“So the amount of women that didn’t know they were in breach, the amount of babies and complications when they got into labor, with one simple machine,” Angelina continued. “But I know there are many extraordinary people who are working on this and women’s health around the world, and many groups dedicated solely to that, and their work is so needed and these solutions can come.”
