Michelle Obama Opens Up about Her Past Miscarriage

Former first lady Michelle Obama gets personal and shares her struggles about what she’s been going through. She shares her struggle with infertility, a subject that is often not talked about. She talked about how she had a miscarriage and was forced to rely on vitro fertilization to conceive her two girls.

She revealed how she was sometimes forced to give herself the shots when Obama was not around.

“I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed,” she told Robin Roberts in an interview that ran Friday on “Good Morning America.” “I didn’t know how common miscarriages were, because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”

According to Dr. Zev Williams, director of the Columbia University Fertility Center. “There’s a real sense of self-blame and guilt and a reluctance to discuss it with other people.” Dr williams said that miscarriage occurs in at least 20% of all pregnancies, 55% of those who responded to his survey thought miscarriage was rare, occurring in 5% or less of pregnancies, and some believed that they occur “in under 0.1% of pregnancies.

Michelle Obama experienced this about 20 years ago. This shows the emotional impact it had on her for her to talk about this now. “For those who have gone through pregnancy loss, they will get a sense of comfort in seeing that they are not alone in the world” and a sense of hope in knowing that Obama was able to go on to have two children, Williams said.








And for those who’ve been spared this sort of struggle, he added, Obama’s story can be “eye-opening and perhaps help people be a little more careful with their words.”
