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.
Meghan Markle is the latest, having penned a heartbreaking account of her miscarriage in the New York Times. The Duchess of Sussex said she felt a sharp pain while holding her son Archie, then she dropped to the floor and hummed a lullaby to keep them both calm. "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second," she wrote.
Markle added, “Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few.”
