These celebs shared their miscarriage pain because yes, we need to talk about it

It is estimated that around 10 to 20 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage, which is defined as the loss of a pregnancy in the first 20 weeks. More than 80 percent of these miscarriages happen before 12 weeks. Even though miscarriages are fairly common and most women will go on to get pregnant again, many women are reluctant to talk about this experience.

These celebrities have opened up about their own miscarriage heartbreak in the hope that sharing their stories will help women going through the same thing. Talking about this experience and knowing that other women have had the same emotions as you really will help you heal and gain closure. Here are their wise words.
