Husband of Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleader Who Died of Sepsis After Stillbirth Speaks Out Against 'One-Size-Fits-All' Prenatal Care

Krystal "Krissy" Anderson died of sepsis on March 20 following the stillbirth of her daughter

The husband of the former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader who died in childbirth following the stillbirth of her daughter is speaking out.

Clayton told ABC News: "One of the issues that I guess I have with the system overall is Krystal is 40, and she's Black, and we'd had a loss before, but even then they say you know, you can't start a plan with maternal-fetal medicine or the high-risk maternity doctors until you get to week 14."

"All pregnancy is high risk, especially, more so, when you're a woman of color, or you're older, and they should be treated that way from the start," Clayton told ABC News.
