Meghan Markle Reveals She Suffered A Miscarriage This Year & The “Unbearable Grief”

Published: Wednesday 25th Nov 2020 by Sam

Meghan Markle has opened up about a personal hardship that she and her family experienced this year.

In a powerful opinion piece, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she suffered a miscarriage of her second child with Prince Harry. 

Speaking out with a view to spotlight the “unbearable grief” millions of women across the world experience, her insightful account awaits below…

Via Meghan Markle / New York Times:

“It was a July morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table. Throw my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib.

After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.

I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.

Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

She went on to say:

“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few. In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.

Some have bravely shared their stories; they have opened the door, knowing that when one person speaks truth, it gives license for all of us to do the same. We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter — for all of us. In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing.”

Our thoughts are with Meghan, whose candidness will help many.

    Oh wow I didn’t expect to hear that. The British press will of course find a way to attack her. She has been through quite a rough ride since marrying Harry.

      Apparently you know her personally, if not, shut your putrid a***. She had the fame before Harry, your dumb a*** would have gladly spread your legs for a prince, every little girls dream unless your some sick bottoms up street dweller. Friggin bandwagonist, Harry made his choice, she made her choice, so kick rocks. Frigg british press are disgusting, invasive, intrusive, disrespectful and dangerous just ask Princess diana, wait we cant anymore because of them. Pierce Morgan is an c***, he really thought she would be interested in his clamy old a***, he’s a hater with a platform but karma is a b**** what goes around comes around.
