“I’m tired of pretending I’m over my miscarriage.
“It feels like something that is not openly talked about in society, and this has made it hard for me to grieve. It’s not a subject I often come across in mainstream media, and I wasn’t even aware of how physically painful it was, let alone emotionally. I had to tell myself for years I was over it, but I’m not. I just learnt to live with it.
“I want this message to be stronger to other women and men who have lost a child through miscarriage – it’s ok to grieve. Yes it was real and you have suffered a loss. And I feel your pain every step of the way. Let’s not suffer in silence anymore.”
