When you live in a house with seven children, things get broken.
And for the Perrottets, New South Wales' "First Family" those things have included three precious reminders of loss.
Speaking to Mamamia, the Premier and his wife, Helen Perrottet said they used to have three little cherub statues on the mantelpiece at home to honour the three children they have lost in miscarriage.
"Maxy, Diana and Francis. We did have little cherubs on our mantlepiece but... some toddler smashed them. They ended up becoming very chipped," Mrs Perrottet said.
The family say they still honour the siblings daily.
"They say goodnight to them every single night," she said. "It’s the acknowledgement of them as little people."
Mr Perrottet said when Helen had her first miscarriage he wasn’t sure how to best offer support.
"When Helen had her first miscarriage I had very little understanding," he said.
"I think one of the issues with miscarriage, a lot of people don’t talk about it because a lot of people don’t announce their pregnancy until 12-weeks," Mrs Perrottet added.
"Miscarriage would normally happen before that point in time. So a lot of people will grieve quietly, and then it's that awful conversation, telling their friends or people around them that they've lost their baby, when they haven't even… told them they were pregnant. Or else they don’t talk about it at all."
Mrs Perrottet encouraged people to reach out to friends and family members who have experienced pregnancy loss.
