Supporters Rally Around Meghan Markle After Duchess Writes About Pregnancy Loss


Supporters are praising Meghan Markle for coming forward and discussing her experience losing a pregnancy in July. 

In an emotional essay for The New York Times called “The Losses We Share,” that Duchess of Sussex wrote that she knew something “was not right” when she was holding her son, Archie, one morning. 

“After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp,” she said. “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,” Meghan said.

The duchess said that “losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few.” 

“Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning,” Meghan added. “In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage.” 

Shortly after the piece was published, supporters began praising Meghan for not only sharing her story of loss, but for doing so despite facing “almost unsurvivable” online hate over the past few years.
