Nobody should feel they can't speak out about how they feel or what they have gone through yet in 2016 more often than not it is kept a secret. Women need to know they are not alone and that they have someone they can talk to did the need arise. 

I first had a molar pregnancy ( A molar pregnancy is an unsuccessful pregnancy, where the placenta and fetus do not form properly, and a baby does not develop ) which was quite a lot of years ago and was devastated to be told there was no baby and that they actually never was I then had to be monitored for months after to check that my hormone levels had gone back to normal. 

Following a miscarriage in January 2013 I again was left devastated. I needed time off work due to depression but there was light at the end of the tunnel and I fell pregnant again only to be devastated yet again by a further miscarriage.Fortunately I have an amazing partner, family and friends that got me through this and I also came to realise it was not meant to be.
