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.

  • Being in the “public eye” probably makes it more difficult too. You knopw you are being watched all the time. Would it help if she was allowed to go back to work early, even just to a behind the scenes desk job? Unfortunately there may not be a position available even if she could do that.


  • It takes a very very long term to come to terms with losing a baby.


  • Everyone processes differently. I hope there is a rainbow for you in the future.


  • I had 3 miscarriages before my daughter who is now 13yrs old. At that time it was hard, but not anymore.


  • Time is the only answer to this loss – and you will always remember the little one usually when you least expect it.


  • You can’t get over a miscarriage in a few months. I don’t think you ever get over it. You just learn to live with that hole in your heart.


  • I allow myself 2 days to be sad now, the day I lost my baby and the day my babe was due, it has been 7 years now so much easier but never ever forgotton


  • Losing a child is terrible. She will need time to recover from this experience. Very good of her to talk about this.
