She wrote on Instagram in a heartbreaking message to mark Baby Loss Awareness week: “It seemed a good (and bad) time to share our story at the end of such an important and heartbreaking campaign and to show our support to all those who have been or are going through a similar journey.”
Jessica also issued a trigger warning to her followers, and asked them to “make use of the mute or unfollow button if any of this is too much for you”.
She continued: “Miscarriage is awful. There’s no other word for it. It robs you of the future you had planned, your faith in your body, it’s isolating, lonely, frightening and something no one seems to talk about, it’s incredibly painful. It’s pass out in your bathroom painful.
“It takes away the joy and excitement when and if you choose (and are able) to get pregnant again. It’s replaced by anxiety, stress and more fear than I could ever have imagined.”
