CAROL VORDERMAN has touched fans hearts after posting her mother’s devastating miscarriage story on her Instagram.
Carol Vorderman, 60, has taken to Instagram to tell her fans about her friend Myleene Klass’, 43, new documentary about her heartbreaking miscarriages. Carol left a heartfelt message to her 174,000 followers.
The loss for many never leaves and yet it’s been a taboo for so long.
She said: “Myleene @myleeneklass is a wonderful mother (I’ve seen it many times over) to 3 happy children. She’s done it the hard way as a single parent for many years.
“Now she’s found the strength (and it is strength) to talk about miscarriage.
“So many suffer miscarriage every day and it not only affects the women who physically endure it but also their partners.
She added: “The loss for many never leaves and yet it’s been a taboo for so long.”
Carol then went on to speak about how lucky she has been to have two healthy children.
She said: “I’ve been ‘lucky’ and had two pregnancies and two babies and have never miscarried.
“My mother did. She became pregnant again, she went full term and then her first child John died just hours after being born. He was buried in a mass grave as babies often were back then.
“I didn’t know how much she’d continued to grieve quietly for him until she was close to death and asked to be buried in the same cemetery to be near him.”
Fans and friends alike were touched by Carol’s words and were quick to the comments.
Myleene said: “Carol. Your words are so powerful. Thank you.”
Aandy1959 added: “Her bravery will inspire people and move them.”
Alienbornbrit commented: “Well said.
“My godfather’s wife had 2 miscarriages in the 1970s and I remember them talking about it 25 or so years later and it clearly still hurt them deeply so well done to Miss Klass for being brave enough to talk about it.
“I wish her and all who have suffered this way huge amounts of love & wrap around hugs. Thank you Carol.”
Carol has two children from her second marriage to management consultant Patrick King.
