Radio host and well loved comedian, Em Rusciano, announced the heartbreaking news of her recent miscarriage and we all just want to hug her tight.
*Trigger warning – this post discusses miscarriage and infant loss*
Em’s post has touched the hearts of thousands. Literally. Nearly 50,000 people have reacted to her heart wrenching words.
Em shared, “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 said she doesn’t think she can withstand the heart break she is going through.
“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.”
We are all very saddened by Ems news but also just in total awe of her honesty and her willingness to be so open about ‘Baby Ray’.
It is so important to speak up and not let the stigma around infant loss and miscarriage continue.
