Almost six months after revealing she’d suffered a devastating miscarriage, radio star, Em Rusciano, says she’s still coming to terms with the loss of baby Ray.
The 38-year-old said knowing she should be giving birth in three weeks’ time had things gone differently, is difficult to digest.
“No, I’m not [feeling better], but I just put one foot in front of the other and that’s all I can do,” Em told Be at the racing event.
“There will always be a…” she trailed off, before saying, “I mean I was supposed to give birth in 20 days”.
Crediting her husband Scott for his support during the challenging time, she said: “Scotty’s been amazing, actually everyone’s been amazing”.
In May Em shared her heartbreaking news, “About 10 weeks ago I got the most wondrous surprise. I found out I was pregnant. I was going to announce it this Monday as we’d hit 13 weeks, but instead I will be at home in the most exquisite pain I can possibly fathom. Yesterday I found out that my little boy, was lost to me.” They named their little boy, Ray.”
Em added, “To the Mothers who have gone through this kind of loss and found a way out of it, I’m in awe of you, I need to know how you got through it because I need to see some light under the door soon.”
In February a grieving mum shared her own miscarriage experience to encourage others to break the stigma and talk about it more. Read her story HERE.
