Note: The following article contains discussion of miscarriage which some readers may find upsetting.
Myleene Klass honoured Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day with a heartbreaking Instagram post discussing her four miscarriages.
Uploading a baby bump selfie yesterday (October 15), the future Dancing on Ice contestant wrote in the caption: "I am Mama to 7 babies, Ava, Hero, Apollo my rainbow baby and 4 little stars in the sky. I know after my own miscarriages how I scoured the internet for stories similar to mine for peace, reassurance.
"I hope this helps even one lost soul."
Further down, the 42-year-old recounted her first baby loss as she began "bleeding heavily" at 10 weeks pregnant.
"The scan was the saddest sight I've ever seen in my life. The first and last time I saw my baby. As the doctor pushed the camera on my belly, the familiar black and blue image of my baby sprung onto the screen, then started to sink and slowly floated down, til it just hunched over. I knew."
Once the body had been removed from her womb, Myleene "woke to emptiness and the horror of what had happened.
"I felt I'd failed my baby and my partner," she revealed.
"The second time was worse if that's possible, I thought I'd had my '1 in 4' experience. This time, the baby had stopped growing at 10wks, completely unrelated to the first miscarriage 'so it's just bad luck'," her story continued.
Remembering the next miscarriage, Myleene recalled sadly losing this one at work, while her fourth occurred in the bathroom.
"Whilst I could get pregnant, there was no explanation for why I couldn't keep them. The Dr's took no chances with Apollo. I injected countless, endless hormones into my belly to keep my placenta working," she explained.
"He signifies everything good in the world to me, my miracle. To my friends and Mamas who have experienced this, you are the strongest women I know. Thinking of you today [heart emoji]."
