Megan Gale has spoken out for the first time about her heartbreak over suffering a miscarriage.
The 41-year-old, who is already mum to two-year-old River with 28-year-old partner Shaun Hampson, shared her experience openly with InStyle Australia.
‘About 10 days out from my eight-week scan, I just felt in my bones something wasn’t right,’ Megan said.
“I can’t put my finger on it—there was no physical change or a sign or symptom…[I wondered] if I was being overprotective and paranoid, or if something was wrong.”
She recalls feeling “nervous and horrible” on the morning of her next scan, but “I just wanted to go and see that bub was okay.”
She remembers, “I hopped up on the table and [my obstetrician] put the ultrasound on my tummy. He just kept moving it and not saying anything and I started to feel sick.” After also completing an internal ultrasound, her specialist broke the news. “He was quiet, and then he just said, ‘I’m so sorry, it’s gone.’ ”
‘As hard as it is to open up about something so heartbreaking, I’ve done so in the hope we can all exercise a bit more sensitivity and consideration and awareness.’
She shared news of her miscarriage last May but had not gone into detail until now about the heartbreaking experience.
