In late September, Chrissy Teigen sharedIt was announced that she and her husband John Legend had lost their unborn son. On Tuesday, about a month later, Teigen disclosed the issue of miscarriage for the first time, which she called “complete and complete sadness.”
Teigen wrote in an article on Medium: “It’s right to start with thank you.” “For weeks, our floor has been covered with kind flowers. Notes are flooded, and every one of them Read with our tearful eyes. Social media messages from strangers made me spend a lot of time. At the very beginning,̵
Teigen described her third pregnancy in detail, which showed that she had been 20 weeks from epidural anesthesia and was induced to give birth to their son, who had named Jack. She said she was diagnosed with “partial placental abruption,” which the Mayo Clinic described as the separation of the placenta from the inner wall of the uterus, reducing or obstructing the baby’s oxygen and nutrient supply and causing the mother to bleed heavily.
Teigen had two other children, a Legend, who had been in bed for more than a month and was eventually hospitalized due to excessive bleeding. Tegen wrote: “Lying in bed, I bleed easily all day long, changing diapers every few hours, and when the blood becomes uncomfortable, I change diapers.”
The loss of Jack was not a complete surprise-Tegan’s doctor warned her after being in the hospital for a few days, “It’s time to say goodbye.”
She wrote: “He just can’t survive, and if we continue, I may not.” “We have tried bag after bag of blood transfusion, and each one passed through me, as if we did nothing. “
Tegan continued: “I cried a little at first, and then started a full twitch of nose and tears. My breath couldn’t catch up with my incredible deep sadness.” “Even if I write this book now, I can still I feel pain again. Oxygen is stuffed into my nose and mouth. That is the first picture you see. It’s completely sad.”
The photo Teigen was referring to (she said she instructed her mother and the legend to take it) was shared on Instagram when she first announced her pregnancy. She said that the legend “hates” taking pictures, but she added that “she needs to know this moment forever” and “need to share this story”.
While the Internet is flooded with her support, she has also been criticized for capturing such an intimate moment.
Tegen wrote in the comment: “I can’t express how much I care about you hating these photos.” “I hardly care that this is something you won’t do. I live, I choose to do it, and most importantly, These photos are not suitable for anyone, only those who have lived or are curious about what the photos look like. These photos are only for people who need them. Other people’s ideas are not important to me.”
Pregnancy loss such asIt is defined in the United States as losing a baby before 20 weeks of pregnancy, and stillbirth is characterized by 20 weeks and beyond. More than many people think-but few people talk about them publicly, and celebrities are often criticized for showing them.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “in every 100 cases at 20 weeks of pregnancy and beyond, about 1 case is affected by stillbirth. In the United States, there are about 24,000 stillbirths every year.” The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists estimates that about 10% of pregnancies end in miscarriage.
80% of miscarriages occur in the first trimester, and many women don’t even tell anyone that they are pregnant. In recent years, Beyoncé, Michelle Obama, Kelly Underwood and Megan McCain have all talked publicly about their miscarriages in an attempt to break the culture of silence.
Tegan said that Jack’s ashes were placed in a box-which would eventually be used as soil for a tree in the family’s new house. “What we think of is his room,” she wrote.
She wrote: “People say that such an experience will create a hole in your heart.” “Of course there is a hole, but it is full of love for things I like very much. In this space, it doesn’t feel empty. It will be full.”
Teigen wrote that the kindness she received-from online messages to cashiers, women who silently add flowers to the grocery shopping cart-“is simply beautiful.”
She said: “But, the worst thing is knowing that so many women won’t get these quiet joys from strangers.” “Please, please share your story and keep up with those who fall into their hearts Be kind. In general, be kind, because some people will not pour out them at all.”
