Hilaria Baldwin Miscarriage:
Hilaria Baldwin, 35, wrote in an Instagram post,
“I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies…and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth…because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand.
So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty…but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult.”
She continued, “I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family…My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting.
In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.”
The yoga instructor, Hilaria Baldwin, who shares four children with Alec Baldwin said on the Today show on Tuesday, April 9 –
“When we agree to be parents, we have to accept the good and the bad,” she told. “It’s not just all diapers and blankets and hair-bows. We have to open our hearts and realize there are going to be bad moments, too.”
She encouraged, “Of course every body is different. If you’re having a strong, healthy pregnancy, there is not a lot you can do to hurt it,” she said. And added that “we should do as right as we can by our children.”
“It would be harder to do it silently,” she explained, “I would pretend I wasn’t nauseous and pretend I wasn’t tired and that’s really tiring.”
