Aussie actress Teresa Palmer has shared a photo of the moment just before she learned she had lost her baby, as well as the traumatic experiences which followed.
In commemoration of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day (October 15th), Teresa shared her own story of miscarriage back in 2015 when she and her husband, Mark Webber, were told their baby didn’t look “viable”.
Take a look:
“August 13, 2015; 7 weeks pregnant and waiting for the doctor to come in to see the heartbeat of our second baby. A few minutes later she walked in, we were giddy with excitement, but we never got to see our baby’s heartbeat, instead we heard the words “I’m so sorry this baby doesn’t look viable”. The next few days were a blur of tests and specialists, a “molar pregnancy” and it was “potentially cancerous”. I needed surgery immediately.
“I was whisked away into the operating theatre to have a D & C. It was the first time I’d ever been in hospital. It was the most terrifying, traumatic and grief filled experience we’ve ever been through. It still haunts us. We were lucky, it didn’t turn cancerous and I went on to give birth to a healthy baby 16 months later.
“Today, October 15th, is Pregnancy & Infant loss awareness day. My heart is with all of you who, like me, are the 1 in 4. Sending all my love on your journey through infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth and infant loss 🙏#miscarriage #1in4”
