Meghan Markle has confirmed that she suffered a miscarriage in July
In an opinion article titled “The Losses We Share” published in The New York Times, the wife of Prince Harry, said that her miscarriage occurred in July.
She describes a normal morning feeding her dogs, taking her vitamins, and changing son Archie’s diaper, before feeling a sharp cramp.
“I dropped to the floor,” Markle, 39, wrote. Adding, she had a “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,” she wrote. “Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she added.
Despite the “staggering commonality of this pain,” wrote Markle, “the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.
“This year has brought so many of us to our breaking points. Loss and pain have plagued every one of us in 2020, in moments both fraught and debilitating.”
