On April 4, the mom of four took to Instagram to share the news that she thought she was “experiencing a miscarriage.” The 35-year-old is used to sharing her family life with fans but she had opened up like never before. In the post, Hilaria shared a photo of herself in her bra and underwear as she places her hand on her stomach.
“I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage,” she wrote. “I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies…and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth…because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand.”

While her decision to publicly go through the miscarriage came under some scrutiny, along with some backlash from fans, a majority of the feedback was positive and many women shared their own stories. Hilaria chose to go public so she could bring awareness to what women go through when suffering a miscarriage and eliminate the silence around the tragedy.
“For me personally, it would be harder to do it silently…being open for me just allowed me to relieve it a little bit,” she revealed on the Today show.
Our thoughts are with Hilaria and her family at this time.

Thank you for your support and thank you for your stories. I want to assure you that I know I will be ok. I have perspective to understand sadness and loss in the grand scheme of things. Emotionally I am processing it all…being able to be open with you has been extremely healing. I was very nervous to share, and am so relieved that it was received with such love. I am grateful that you listened and I’m grateful that I have these tiny partners to go through this with. I don’t know what I would do without my community. Thank you for making my world a brighter place and for your sharing. I know that you didn’t have to and am humbled and honored by your openness. I don’t know about you, but I find it extremely comforting to know that I am not alone on this difficult journey ❤️ #neveralone
