Hilaria Baldwin says that she "is probably suffering from a miscarriage".
The 35-year-old co-host of Mom Brain shared a picture of herself on Instagram, rocking her belly and writing a frank message to her followers about pregnancy loss.
"I want to tell you that I am probably suffering from a miscarriage. I've always promised myself that if I get pregnant again, I'll share the news with you soon enough, even if it means a public loss, "she wrote. "I've always been so open with you about my family, my fitness, my pregnancy … and I do not want to hide that from you, just because it's not as positive and brilliant than the rest. I think it's important to show the truth … because my job is to help people by being real and open. "
Baldwin, who is married to Alec Baldwin, said she had "no shame or embarrassment" about what she was going through and wanted to dispel any stigma surrounding a miscarriage.
"I want to be part of the effort to normalize miscarriages and eliminate stigma. There is so much secrecy during the first quarter. It works for some, but I personally find it exhausting, "Baldwin explained. "I'm nauseated, tired, my body changes. And I have to pretend that everything is fine – and that's really not the case. I do not want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. "
Hilaria, who is already a mother of four with the star of "Saturday Night Live", then explained in detail what she was going through.
"So that's what's happening right now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it's not powerful and the baby does not grow much. So we wait – and it's difficult. There is so much uncertainty … but it is very unlikely to be a viable pregnancy, "she said. "I am totally confident that my family and I will do it, even if the trip is difficult."
She added, "I am so blessed by my extraordinary doctor, my dear friends and my family who loved me very much … My husband and my four very healthy babies help me stay together and have the perspective of the beauty of life, even occasionally. looks ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel for being the mother of my baby is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. "
Hilaria called for kindness in her comments by writing, "I feel a little fragile and I need support. I hope that by sharing this, I will be able to help raise awareness on this sensitive topic. "
