After going through the traumatic throes of enduring miscarriages, some celebrities showed courage by sharing their stories and experiences.
In recent times fertility issues and the sad occurrence of miscarriages have become rampant among everyday people and celebrities. As of 2015, a survey showed that 55 percent of respondents believed miscarriages are rare.
According to Obstetricians and Gynecologists, at least ten percent of known pregnancies often end in a miscarriage. The Mayo Clinic also attests to this. There have also been studies on the post-traumatic effect of losing pregnancies.
40 percent of the survey revealed that many women who have miscarried often feel the creeping nature of loneliness. However, what is empowering is how many stars have opened up.
Back in 2010, after the “Beneath Your Beautiful” crooner gave birth to her daughter, she opened up about suffering a miscarriage.
This was before she became pregnant and with her daughter. Pink shared that she was very skeptical about sharing the news of her second pregnancy because she was nervous.
If there’s one woman who could tell the story of strength and endurance regarding motherhood, it is safe to say that Gabrielle Union would take the mantle.
The actress who is now a mom-of-one and stepmom to four lovely kids suffered “eight or nine miscarriages.” Union shared this in her book, “We’re Going To Need More Wine.”
She penned: “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant. I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.”
The former first lady is the mom of two girls, Malia and Sasha, who are growing to become lovely young ladies. However, Michelle’s journey to motherhood was quite challenging.
The public figure wrote of her miscarriage in her best-selling book, “Becoming.” Michelle noted that experiencing a miscarriage was “physically uncomfortable” and it diminished her and her spouse’s optimism.
The famous attorney added that she felt like a failure because she had no idea how common miscarriages were.
Beyoncé’s motherhood journey has produced three kids including a set of twins. However, her pregnancy before she had Blue Ivy, ended in a miscarriage. She opened up about it in 2013 and described it as “the saddest thing” she’s been through.
The “The Real” star is currently pregnant with her first child. She is expecting her unborn baby with her husband and star rapper Jeezy. Although this is the couple’s first child together, this isn’t Mai’s first pregnancy.
The TV personality revealed that she was pregnant in March before their wedding and later lost it. Mai noted that she was devastated and paranoid because of her former resolution of not wanting children.
The “LPBW” star and her husband Zack Roloff are parents to two kids, Jackson and Lilah. Earlier this year, Tori opened up about losing her third pregnancy.
The TV star shared that she and her husband went for an ultrasound in the eighth week and found out about the miscarriage.
Tori recalled being sad because she had no symptoms and was not even aware that she already lost her third child. She relayed that she “had never felt lost” in a more profound way.
The “Labyrinth” podcast host shared that she and her spouse, Christopher Robinson “got pregnant fast” and were looking forward to the delivery day. However, it became a different story after Knox’s doctor told them there was no heartbeat.
Knox shared about losing her pregnancy: “Parents should never know the heartbreak of losing a child. “I pray that we can all find peace that our babies are waiting for us in heaven and we will meet one day.”
The “Onward” actress who was already a mom-of-two did not think she could ever miscarry a pregnancy. So at 7 weeks, she informed several people that her family was expecting an addition.
Wong, an award-winning actress, and comedian recalled telling the lady who cleans her house about the pregnancy. She noted that the lady had told her it was not ideal to tell people. Wong shared: “Now I know why — it’s because then you have to tell everyone the bad news.”
Shay Mitchell took to her Instagram page sharing an unforgettable experience that happened in 2018. The actress was grateful for her fans as she noted that one of her darkest hours was when she lost a pregnancy.
