It happens to one in four pregnant women in Australia, yet these women often chose to soldier on in silence.
Miscarriages are seldom talked about and the grief process and loss felt afterwards even less so.
Yet, Susan Sarandon’s daughter has chosen not to stay silent. Recently pregnant with her second child, actress and blogger, Eva Amurri Martino has written on her blog, Happily Eva After, the misconceptions that still surround miscarriage and the grief which follows.
“I think there’s a misconception that once a woman conceives after a Miscarriage, that somehow her Miscarriage is erased– that the feelings of loss are replaced by feelings of joy for this new baby, and that everything moves forward as it should be. In my own experience, this couldn’t be further from the truth,” Martino wrote.
