Our Miscarriage: Our Story will tell viewers everywhere that it’s time to confront this last taboo – and grieve openly for our lost children.
As part of baby loss awareness week, in October, this poignant film will be broadcast on International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Brave women and men lift the lid on this common event that wreaks destruction for would-be parents. Each recalls – in raw detail – their very personal stories of the day they lost their babies.
Musician Izzy Judd remembers going to the toilet, “the physical sensation of having a miscarriage, of passing a baby, I’ll never forget that.”
Actress Lacey Turner recalls sobbing her heart out. She went back to work the next day, “I was walking around feeling so heartbroken, yet nobody would have had a clue.”
Actress Jane Danson was desperate for her 12th week scan. On the day, the doctor turned the screen away from her and said “I don’t think there’s a heartbeat.”
Journalist Matt Farquharson remembers how useless he felt, he “became this gormless bystander, hoping for the best…”
Our Miscarriage: Our Story airs Thursday, 15 October on Channel 5
