Famous Celebrities Who Have Miscarried: “Cure Is Possible”
A number of celebrities recently stepped forward with their personal pregnancy loss stories to reach out to other mothers and fathers suffering the same loss.
For many, 2020 and 2021 came as part of a single package filled with fear, horror, and total reinvention. For others, it turned into a legacy from the children they lost.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are one of the most notable celebrities to speak of their loss in a note to the New York Times.
The Duchess suffered the harrowing loss in 2020 and wrote a loving note articulating her pain as well as the moment she realized she was “losing my second”.
An excerpt from her long post read: “After the change [Archie’s] I felt a sharp cramp in the di -er. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms and hummed a lullaby to calm us both down, the h -py melody contrasting sharply with my feeling that something was wrong. When I held my firstborn, I knew I was going to lose my second. “
“In the pain of our loss, my husband and I found that in a room with 100 women, 10 to 20 of them miscarried.”
“But despite the astonishing commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, is riddled with (unjustified) shame and continues a cycle of lonely grief … OK?”
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend also lost their little boy in September 2020 and publicly mourned the loss on their Instagram accounts.
Teigen’s post in honor of the baby they wanted to call “Jack” highlighted their plight and read, “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain that is only heard of, the kind of pain we’ve never heard before felt. “
“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite the bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough. “
“We started calling that little guy in my belly Jack for some reason. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be part of our little family and he will be forever. “
Thousand Years singer Christina Perri also suffered a more personal loss which she documented on her personal Instagram page to “help change the history and stigma surrounding miscarriages”.
She shared a post announcing the loss that said, “Today I had a miscarriage. Baby was 11 weeks old, we are shocked and completely heartbroken. “
Perri’s husband, Costabile, lost their second daughter, Rosie, and in her post she admitted, “I’m so sad, but I’m not ashamed. … To all the mothers who have been and will be here, I see you and I love you. “
Country singer and songwriter Carrie Underwood has suffered nearly three miscarriages in the course of two years, and in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, she addressed the timeline of her pain.
There she explained, “We got pregnant in early 2017 and we didn’t work out. At that point it was just like, ‘Okay, what’s the deal? What’s this all?'”
When she talked about her miscarriages, she felt that “a weight has been lifted from my shoulders” and proved to her that “it’s not a dirty secret. A lot of women go through that. “
Well-known singer and songwriter Beyoncé felt her entire perception of fame and accolades change after she miscarried and accepted a miscarriage.
She even explained her secret ordeal during a 2020 interview with Elle, admitting, “I started looking for deeper meaning when life started teaching me lessons I didn’t know I needed. Success looks different to me now. I’ve learned that all pain and loss is really a gift. “
“My miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could mother anyone else. Then I had Blue and the search for my goal got so much deeper. I died and was reborn in my relationship and the search for self grew stronger. “
“I have a hard time going backwards. Being ‘Number One’ was no longer my priority. My real gain is creating art and a legacy that goes well beyond me. It’s fulfilling.”
Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin, had a whirlwind experience in 2019 when she lost her baby at 20 weeks of age.
She even announced the news in an open Instagram update, which should be transparent, and read: “We are very sad to announce that we learned today that our baby died at the age of 4 months. We would like to also that you know that although we are not. ” Okay, now we will be. “
Pink is a singer who has never shied away from sharing her personal story and has even written songs to process her pain.
In a previous interview with USA Today, she finally addressed the inspiration behind her song H -py, stating that it was due to the loss she suffered earlier in her life.
She even told the point of sale, “The reason I said [that] It’s because I’ve always had this very wild, very strong gymnastics body, but in fact I miscarried when I was 17. And I would have this child. “
“But when that h -pens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken and not doing what it’s supposed to.”
For Pink: “I think it’s important to talk about what you are ashamed of, who you really are and what hurts [expletive]. I’ve always written like that. “
Country singer and lyricist Jana Karmer also struggled after several miscarriages and addressed her loss in a long Instagram post.
The post read: “A year ago today I received the message that I had another miscarriage. It was after an IVF cycle. The embryo was a boy and it was the last embryo we had. “
“I was devastated. I felt like I had failed [woman], and as a wife. IVF was again not an option because it is too expensive, so I felt defeated. “
“To all [women] out there who have miscarried and [are] Still waiting for your rainbow baby, you are not alone. And I know nothing I say is going to improve the longing or the pain, but if anything you know that you are not alone and that I was in the same place a year ago. I pray that you will see your silver lining too. “
