The Duchess of Sussex suffered a miscarriage in July, speaks up about it

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle shares a hardship she went through this year, losing her second child in an opinion piece for the New York Times. She was pregnant with her second child but had to go through a miscarriage in July.

She wrote explaining the incident that she felt a sharp cramp while changing the diaper of her firstborn child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor whom she had in 2019 with her husband Prince Harry. She further wrote, “I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right, I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”

The Duchess also wrote “Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heartbreak as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, ‘Are you OK?'”

“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she said. She urged more women to come up with their stories and support the ones who are already doing. Within minutes, women began sharing their own similar encounters and praised her for her honesty and confidence.
