Hilaria Baldwin says she’s likely experiencing a miscarriage right now in a candid Instagram post
Miscarriage is something that so many women experience in silence—even though so very many people and families have gone through it. In an April 4th Instagram post, Hilaria Baldwin, author and co-host of the podcast Mom Brain, shared that she’s pregnant, but that she is “most likely” experiencing a miscarriage.
In the candid post, Baldwin—who has four children with actor Alec Baldwin—shared a picture of herself in her underwear, cradling her abdomen.
"I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage," Baldwin began her caption. "I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies...and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest."
Baldwin went on to add that she’s sharing her experience because she wants to help “normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it.” She explained that her baby currently has a very weak heartbeat and isn’t growing on schedule, and noted that “the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy.” Baldwin added that she feels grateful to already be the mother of four children and that she and her family will get through this difficult time.
"My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly," she wrote. "The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting."
Losing a pregnancy is never easy, but we’re thankful that Baldwin is raising awareness about this common—yet often undiscussed—issue. We’re thinking of her and her family right now.
