Miscarriage and infant loss, though heartbreaking experiences, can still be difficult to talk about and have some stigma attached. Recently celebrities like Mark Zuckerburg, Beyoncé, and Pink have opened up about miscarriages they’ve suffered and have helped to open up the dialogue. Sadly, another celebrity added his voice to the discussion today: famed chef Gordon Ramsay. On his Facebook page, this father of four said:
A late-term loss like this is so, so tragic and difficult as typically the mother has to give birth to the stillborn child, which is truly an emotional experience, I’m sure.
I don’t know exactly what the Ramsay’s situation was, but I can say that I am heartbroken that they lost this precious life they were so looking forward to adding to their family. They are certainly in my prayers, and I do appreciate them speaking out and adding their voices to the conversation about infant loss.
