This is how Carrie Underwood survived 3 miscarriages in less than 2 years

September 17, 2018

If you've ever suffered the pain of a miscarriage, I think it's only truly understood by others who've experienced it, too. And you can be as wealthy as you please and still have troubled pregnancies.

Carrie Underwood bravely spoke about the struggles with miscarriage she experienced beginning in early 2017 and I think it might feel like a familiar scenario to you or someone you know.

Isn't it wonderful how open she is? This is a topic that's not discussed a lot and it can leave women who suffer a single or multiple miscarriages feeling isolated with a host of difficult emotions. That makes getting from the couch to the fridge seem impossible, forget about showing up to a photo shoot where you're under pressure to look your best.

All that AND she falls and needs over 40 stitches in her face! Safe to say 2017 was an especially rough year for her family. We all have them and we never know when they're coming.

Do you have a place where you can really let your soul rest, like Carrie does? Everyone needs that. Given how emotional she was as she talked about it (and no doubt pregnancy hormones are a factor) I'll bet she's often feeling a lot more stressed out than she lets on.

One final thought on crying in interviews like this -- no need to apologize. Ever. Pregnant or not. Being authentic is the thing everyone connects to and who wants to hear someone talk about how perfect their life is when theirs is in the pooper. We're all struggling in one way or another and sometimes we can learn really valuable stuff from people who aren't afraid to be vulnerable. It takes a lot of guts to reveal yourself that way.

Don't you love Carrie Underwood even more now?
