After she lost the first child to miscarriage, she felt it was like a sharp dagger pierced into her heart. Melissa did not understand where she had gone wrong as a mother. The pain of losing her unborn child was too much to bear.
In an interview, she said, “miscarriage is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. Honestly, I could not understand why it had to be me bearing all this pain. I could always look at other pregnant women, and every time it would bring back fresh memories of my lost child.”
She suffered prenatal depression and tried to overcome the issue. Every day, it was a painful process of recovery.
After going through this painful ordeal, she decided to start a PSA platform with other celebrities who suffered similar issues. This initiative offered an opportunity to talk about pregnancy loss, and how to deal with it. Melissa thinks miscarriage is a good topic to talk about because often people assume it’s the woman’s fault about it.
In most cases, the issue of miscarriage is way beyond anyone’s control. At first, Melissa felt guilty but then realized she is not responsible.
