6 Celebrities on the pain and heartbreak of suffering a miscarriage

 

These celebrities have publicly spoken about their experiences with pregnancy loss.

When we go through an emotionally traumatic experience, we often close down and keep the pain private—and miscarriage can be a heartrending ordeal.

Sadly, up to 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage. But the more we talk about it, the less people will feel alone. In recent years, celebrities have stepped up to share their stories of loss. Here are the famous faces who’ve had the courage to open up about their experiences with miscarriage.

These celebrities have all bravely commented on their own pregnancy losses, and their quotes about miscarriage are worth sharing with all.

…I lost everything! RHOK actress Njambi says of miscarriage

 

Speaking on her vlog, Size 8 said, “Don’t take baby showers for granted. Learn to appreciate everything in life. For me, this pregnancy getting here (last trimester) is a miracle. I’ve almost died several times. It doesn’t matter if you have billions of money, you can’t enjoy what you have.”

She narrated how the pregnancy took a toll on her, a few months after she suffered a miscarriage.

“I panicked and asked my husband (DJ Mo): The other pregnancy miscarried, what if this also terminates? So we rushed to the hospital and I was given some medication,” she said.

“Three weeks later, I got a very major pressure attack, and after some time, it went down a bit. Again, I started feeling some weird pains in my uterus.”

2. Njambi of Real Househelp of Kawangware:

‘Real Househelp of Kawangware’ actress Njambi has opened up about a miscarriage she had with her previous pregnancy.

She wrote on social media, “That gave me the anxiety of sharing this news of this pregnancy. When we got pregnant on November 2017, we were not ready. I remember after the miscarriage on April 2018, everyone told us that everything happened for a reason. We didn’t quite understand that it wasn’t the right time for us.

3. Beyonce:

Beyoncé herself opened up about the loss in her HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream. “Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” she said in the doc. “You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.” But early complications caused her to lose the child. “I flew back to New York to get my check up — and no heartbeat… Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.” She added, “The pain and trauma just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world.”

4. Mariah Carey:

Mariah Carey opened up about her miscarriage heartache after losing her first baby before the twins came along. Back in 2008, Cannon revealed that right around the Christmas holiday, they learned they were pregnant and prepared to share the good news with friends and family. That plan was derailed by a call from Carey’s doctor.

“Unfortunately, that was the time where he said, ‘I’m sorry, but the pregnancy is not successful,’ ” Cannon recalled. “It was emotional for both of us and that’s when I saw the strength. She handled it so well and then to get on the plane and have to spend Christmas with friends and family, it definitely brought us closer together. It strengthened our relationship so much … she handled it so well.”

Carey went on to say the experience, though challenging, has made them more ready for parenthood.

“The way it happened, so quickly at first, I didn’t know what to expect. That was not easy,” she admitted. “I’ve never really been a very forthcoming person about my personal stuff. It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult. When that happened … I wasn’t able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy.”

5. Gabrielle Union:

Over the past few years, Gabrielle Union has been an open book about her fertility struggles. In her 2017 memoir, she wrote about how she’s had “eight or nine” miscarriages throughout her life—most recently with her husband, Dwayne Wade—and she likened her body to a “prisoner” of trying to get pregnant. But now, at the age of 45, she finally was able to get a diagnosis.

“Toward the end of my fertility journey, I finally got some answers. Everyone said, You’re a career woman, you’ve prioritized your career, you waited too long and now you’re just too old to have a kid—and that’s on you for wanting a career. The reality is I actually have adenomyosis,” Union said at the annual BlogHer conference, according to People. “The gag is I had it in my early 20s.”

Union noted how almost all of the doctors she visited disregarded her symptoms and would solely put her on birth control as a treatment. “Instead of diagnosing me, they were like, Oh you have periods that last nine or 10 days and you’re bleeding through overnight pads, perhaps there’s something more there,” she explained. “Every doctor I saw was like, Let me put you on birth control. The pill can mask all kinds of things. It is amazing at preventing pregnancy; not so great with addressing adenomyosis.”

6. Nana Owiti (King Kaka’s wife):

“In April 2014, I went to the washroom and got a blood stain. Very fast I Google and somewhere hapo napata ooh! Sijui implantation bleeding,” stated Nana. The blood stain prompted her to visit a hospital where a scan was conducted.

“The sonographer calls another Sonographer and I hear. ‘Hakuna!’

“Anyway I ask ‘hakuna nini?’ the first sonographer says ‘hakuna heartbeat’…
“I gave King (Kaka) a quick glance and quickly gave those two sonographer another one expecting a ‘We just fooled you!’ My God! There was no taking back their words. I died a little. King was confused and I some more. I walked out first and sat by the hallway of the hospital.”

Other celebrities who have shared their own struggles and experiences with miscarriages and the pain they bring also include Pink, Gwyneth Paltrow.
