I was affected, though indirectly, by pregnancy loss. My younger brother and his wife experienced a miscarriage during her first pregnancy and it really hit them hard. The one thing that stuck out for me was how alone and helpless my sister-in-law said she felt. But pregnancy loss affects all walks of life and even the rich and famous cannot escape it.
In this article, I’ve listed quotes from celebrities who, just like my sister-in-law, have lived through a miscarriage. I think that for people who are living the same tragedy hearing from these stars will be comforting. It shows that we are all human and we all have the same capacity for resilience even in the most trying times of our lives.

Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain; but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.
It takes strength to make your way through grief, to grab hold of life and let it pull you forward.
You’re never really ready to be told that there’s no heartbeat. But stay strong because life goes on and it is nobody’s fault.
The best advice that I got during counseling: Don’t judge your spouse’s
grief response. Give them the freedom to grieve their own way. Rachael Crawford
I get pregnant pretty easily, but I have a hard time keeping them. I don’t say it’s a walk in the park. But what are you going to do? We just try again.
Not to be too detailed, but I’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages and I’ve had fertility treatments. I’ve done all the stuff you can possibly do to try get pregnant.
I’d had three great pregnancies. I thought morning sickness was the end of the world, and it’s not until something pretty major happens that you’re like, oh my gosh those were all a piece of cake. I had a pretty large bleed. I thought I was having a miscarriage.
If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough.
We never truly get over a loss, but we can move forward and evolve from it.
Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.
I’m most proud of our son, having suffered several miscarriages before having him. As for the next mountain, it takes so much to maintain what’s already going on that I don’t have time to think about it. But I want some more seasons of the TV show, I’d like to write another book, and eventually, I’d like to retire and take vacations with my husband like my mom and dad do.
I suffered several miscarriages, including two at five months. That’s when you have the clothes already picked out, the nursery is already painted. They ask you do you want a funeral or do you want the cremation. We went through that not once but twice, me and my husband. So our Kevin is a hard-won child. I would’ve loved to have had more children, but I don’t want to test my blessing.
Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few.
It’s amazing how much people hide it. They feel like,‘What did I do wrong?’ But in so many cases you didn’t do anything at all.
I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift. Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else.
Miscarriage is death without ceremony. No funeral, no name. No one would ever tell you, for example, that mother-death is actually quite common. Hang in there, honey, you’ll find another mother.

If I were to start a file on things nobody tells you about until you’re right in the thick of them, I might begin with miscarriages. A miscarriage is lonely, painful, and demoralizing, almost on a cellular level.
I guess love just wasn’t enough for us to survive. I swear, I swear, I swear I tried. You took the life right out of me. I’m so unlucky I can’t breathe. You took the life right out of me. I’m longing for your heartbeat, heartbeat.
After the first miscarriage, I tried to take the attitude that it was my body’s way of telling me that this pregnancy wasn’t meant to be, and that it was better for everybody. But after the second one, it was really devastating. Four months is a lot of living with that little life in you—thinking about it, eating right for it, nurturing it—and all of a sudden, it dies.

He chose to let go to give space to his brothers to grow.
Any woman who’d ever lost a child knew of the hollowness that remained within the soul.
Brittainy C. Cherry
We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before
All I could do was cry; I felt desolate, the tears rolling down my cheeks as I tried to comprehend what had happened.
Colette Centeno Fox
The human population would probably be way less than a thousand, if ejaculation were not usually accompanied by an orgasm.
Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like what is this? Either shut the door or let me have a kid.
Grief is wild like the sea, but it doesn’t need to destroy us. We can’t conquer it, but we can navigate it, and we can find Jesus there too.
She was so festive and smiling, obviously for the cameras, and spending time with everyone. And then, literally, at night, [she was] crying herself to sleep.
I beat myself up for it because I think that the reason it happened is just the lifestyle I was living. I wasn’t drinking. I wasn’t doing drugs. I was ******* overworked.
I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out, and I nearly died. So I am like, ‘Are we good here or should we go back and try again?
They don’t get the particular nature of this grief, how it’s less about the loss of a potential child than it is about the endless possibility that there may yet be an actual child.
I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed … I didn’t know how common miscarriages were, because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.
The world was selfish, unjust. How could so many undeserving people be given the opportunity to raise children they didn’t even want while so many worthy individuals didn’t get the chance?
Brittainy C. Cherry
I remember hoping my husband’s parents wouldn’t be disappointed. It was this intrinsic concern. I didn’t want them to feel like their son married a bad seed – and they didn’t feel that way; they were very supportive.
There are days worth living still, worth the pain of this life and the pain of their deaths. I guess I’m just asking you a favor, in the end: Don’t give up before the future comes around that was meant for you, okay?
I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.
I am not functioning very well. Living with the knowledge that the baby is dead is painful. I feel so far away from you, God. I can only try to believe that you are sustaining me and guiding me through this. Please continue to stand by my side.
Christine O’Keeffe Lafser
I fought tooth and nail to be a mother. I suffered several miscarriages including two at five months. That’s when you have the clothes already picked out, the nursery is already painted. They ask you do you want a funeral or do you want the cremation. We went through that not once but twice, me and my husband.
It’s not that motherhood is out of reach, it’s that it’s just out of reach. It’s not that motherhood didn’t happen, it’s that it almost did and, in fact, still could. The difference between the grief of infertility and other reasons for mourning – the loss of a spouse, for example – is in that promise of ‘just,’ in ‘almost,’ in ‘still could.
I think that’s one of the reasons women don’t tell people when they’ve had a miscarriage—they think it’s their fault. I remember I worried what my in-laws would think, which is so crazy. I thought they’d think their son had married a terrible person. Also, because I made the mistake of telling people as soon as I got pregnant, I then had to tell them the bad news and then I felt like I was burdening them.
Basically, “Making a Murderer” chronicles a set of crimes committed in Wisconsin: Manitowoc, Wisconsin. The first crime is a miscarriage of justice. Steven Avery is convicted and sentenced to a very, very long prison sentence for the assault on a woman. And it comes to light through DNA evidence that he was not the assailant.
When my wife and I lost our son, we had similar but very different experiences. She felt she was caught in a blizzard and she doesn’t remember the six months after we lost him. For me, it was like everything that I had known burnt to the ground, this field or forest that was turned to ash, burning, smoldering. How do I make sense of a world where this can happen?
Grief is the price we pay for love.
Queen Elizabeth II
Your fingerprints are on my heart.
If you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.
I wish I could have held you just once before you left us.
She was born silent after fighting so hard to make it to our world. She is at peace now and will live forever in our hearts.
It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult. When that happened… I wasn’t able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy.
It was horrendous and something I would not wish on my worst enemy. It’s something that I still haven’t dealt with. I never will get over it. I held my child, and it was really horrific and painful — one of the hardest things that can happen to a person
