The star, who is best known for playing Mel in Albert Square, added a single red heart emoji to her moving post.
Plenty of fans sent messages of support after the mum-of-two opened up.
“No shame whatsoever,” posted one person, while another said: “Never feel shame Tamzin xx.”
“Same Tam,” tweeted former EastEnder Kacey Ainsworth.
Klass has been open about her heartache over losing four babies and in her new documentary said it nearly “broke” her.
“When you’ve been through miscarriage, you’ve been through a battle with your body,” she said.
“You’ve been to war and there are casualties.”
The 43-year-old said she struggled to even say the word “miscarriage” for a long time.
“It is one word, but it is grief, it is trauma, it is sadness, it is fear,” she said. “There must be a reason people can't say it.”
