Losing a pregnancy is heartwrenching.
We take a look at celebs who have lost their unborn children through miscarriages and their inspiring stories of triumph.
1. Size 8
In 2018, Size 8 suffered a miscarriage, she was five weeks pregnant leaving her and her husband DJ Mo heartbroken.
Speaking to Word Is at the time, Mo said that it is hard to understand what the problem was.
My wife was five weeks pregnant before the miscarriage,” DJ Mo told Word Is.
Miscarriage can be caused by so many things, like stress. Others may fail to adjust with the body, but we are doing well.
Mo adds that the best way to overcome such an incident is to love each other.
If you love each other, that is a small thing. All you need is to encourage each other and it passes.
2. Creme de la Creme
In September 2018, DJ Creme and his wife Denise lost their unborn child while she was six months pregnant.
The couple were expecting their third child before losing her to the cruel hand of death.
So The last 3 Weeks have been Hard for my Family and I. Pain & Tears perfectly tucked behind the smiles and fake laughters. I was out of the country when my pregnant Wife Denise called and told me that she’s headed to the hospital and it was an emergency. I won’t lie my heart sunk because I somewhat knew what that meant.
I remember kneeling down and Crying to God to keep Her safely wrapped in His Warm Embrace. The worst news came in that the doctor couldn’t feel the baby’s Heartbeat. We’d lost the baby, at 6 Months 😢 So Close…So So Close.
DJ Creme revealed that he couldn’t forgive himself.
I Won’t Lie, It tore me to pieces because I couldn’t forgive myself for being miles away and yet my wife was going through this alone.

4. Michelle Obama
In her book Becoming former America’s first black first lady Michelle Obama talks about politics, then goes digging deep into some personal issues.
From a miscarriage to using in-vitro fertilization to conceive her daughters to marriage counselling.
In a past interview with ABC News Obama said he did not know how common miscarriages were until his wife suffered the same.
I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed. I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.
In the book Michele writes that fertility treatments allowed her to conceive daughters Malia, now 20, and Sasha, 17.
It turns out that even two committed go-getters with a deep love and robust work ethic can’t will themselves into being pregnant. We had to do IVF,” she told ABC, in excerpts of an interview.
Michelle admits the couple on occasions turned to counselling, where they “learned how to talk out” problems.
Akothee collapsed at a train station in Geneva, Switzerland in 2016 and was rushed to a nearby hospital.
She underwent a successful surgery but unfortunately, none of her unborn babies survived.
