Myleene Klass admits she couldn’t speak about her four miscarriages for a whole year
‘People are taking their lives because of this’, ela diz

Myleene Klass has admitted that was unable to speak about her four miscarriages for a whole year, saying “I couldn’t even say the word”.

The TV personality has opened up about her experiences in a frank new documentary entitled Myleene Klass: Miscarriage & Mim for W.

No filme, the 43-year-old speaks about the saúde mental struggles she suffered, afirmando: “People [estão] taking their lives because of this. It can put pressure on relationships. The PTSD that some women suffer is the equivalent of a soldier returning from war.”

The radio DJ hopes her film will encourage others to speak about their pregnancy losses in a bid to normalise the experience.

“It is one word, but it is grief, it is trauma, it is sadness, it is fear. There must be a reason people can’t say it," ela diz.

“I lost a lot of me. I couldn’t talk about it for a year, I couldn’t even say the word.”

In October 2020, Klass revealed on Instagram that she had suffered four miscarriages, stating that she is a “mama to seven babies” including “four little stars in the sky” for National Baby Loss Miscarriage Day.

The singer cited model Chrissy Teigen’s openness about her own pregnancy loss as giving her the “courage” to speak about her own experiences.

“It was such a visceral, honest post," Ela diz O telégrafo. “So many women needed to see that. eu pensei, 'Nós vamos, the only way you can play your part in this is by talking and by also sharing.’ But it’s very difficult to do and it leaves you in an extremely vulnerable position.”

With one in four pregnancies ending in miscarriage, the radio DJ said that she and her friends “literally pass that miscarriage baton”.

Ela adiciona: “It is harder for me to find friends who have not had miscarriages now.”

Klass, who has two daughters with a former partner, Ava, 13, and Hero,9, one-year-old Apollo with fiance Simon Motson, and his 14-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter who live between two households, admitted she felt powerless in the face of miscarriage.

“My body has guided me through everything – it can play the piano, it’s given me children,’ she said.

“To be so at odds with my body was difficult. I felt like I’d failed each baby.”

Myleene Klass: Miscarriage & Mim will air on October 14 at 9pm on W.
