CELEBRITY Miscarriages

According to research, 10-20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. Despite its frequency, the subject is still considered taboo to discuss in public. However, several celebrities have opened up about their experiences having one or multiple miscarriages.

Broadway star Laura Benanti recently took to Instagram on April 5 to share her painful and recent history of pregnancy loss. "On Monday April 3rd, I performed on stage for 2000 people while having a miscarriage. I knew it was happening. It started slowly the night before. If it had been our first loss, or even our second, I likely wouldn’t have been able to go on. But unfortunately, I am not a stranger to the pain and emptiness of losing a pregnancy." She went on to thank all of those who were around her as she went through that traumatic event, from the audience who "lifted me out of my grief for that Holy hour," to her band for "holding me, unconditionally, in your hearts," and to her producers, "who could give a masterclass on how to handle a personal emergency with empathy and compassion." 

She concluded the heart-wrenching but beautifully worded post by saying that she was sharing her experience "to remind the many people and families who have and will suffer in this way that there is no shame in this kind of loss." She signed off, "My hand in yours, Laura."
