“When I held my first child in my arms, I knew that I was losing my second,” wrote the wife of Prince Harry, the son of the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles.
Archie, the first son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, was born on May 6, 2019.
As Meghan wrote, “in 2020, we were all haunted by loss and pain.” She described the circumstances under which the miscarriage occurred. In the morning, she felt a “sharp cramp,” after which she was taken to the hospital.
“I was lying in a hospital bed, and I saw that my husband’s heart was literally breaking, and he was trying to help me,” Megan describes this day.
Meghan Markle, 39, says she decided to talk about her experience to encourage people to take care of each other during the holidays when Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States. Her New York Times column’s main theme was the question” Are you OK? ” She asked Prince Harry in hospital. In her opinion, people should take care of others more often.
She also called for a more open conversation about the feelings of women who lose children during pregnancy.
“The loss of a child means almost unbearable grief. A lot of people feel this, but they say very little about it,” Megan writes. — In the pain of our loss, my husband and I found out that out of every 100 women, 10 to 20 suffered a miscarriage. But despite the overwhelming prevalence of this grief, talking about it remains a taboo topic that is associated with (unjustifiable) shame.”
“Some showed courage and shared their experiences. They decided to open this door, realizing that the moment one person starts telling the truth, others get the right to do the same,” Megan writes.
