Sharon Stone shared the painful loss of ‘nine children’ through miscarriage on a comment in a People Magazine’s Instagram post.
The post was about the "Dancing with the Stars" performer Peta Murgatroyd who has opened up about losing a pregnancy while her husband, Maks Chmerkovskiy, was in Ukraine.
Stone, who is the mother of sons Roan, Laird and Quinn through adoption, criticized the health system for not giving enough support to women.
"We, as females, don't have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss.
“It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure.
Instead of receiving the much needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need.
Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology has become lax at the best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in effort.”
The 64-year-old actress, Sharon Stone, revealed in a 2017 interview with EXTRATV that a genetic blood condition caused her miscarriages.
“When I lost my last baby, I went through 36 hours of labor without giving birth,” she also revealed in her 2021 memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice.
An estimated 23 million miscarriages occur globally every year, with one in 10 women suffering a pregnancy loss in their lifetime, according to a 2021 editorial published in The Lancet medical journal.
