Why its so important we listen to these female MPs talking about miscarriage – Stylist Magazine

Owen shared her own story, saying: If we are to end the stigma, silence and shame [around miscarriage], we have to be open and honest. The first time I miscarried, I was at work and I knew something wasnt right, so I put myself in for a scan on my lunch break. I was by myself then and they told me there was no heartbeat. And to be honest, what happened next was a bit of a blur, but I still remember the emotional and physical pain as if it was yesterday.

She then talked about her second miscarriage, and the difference that having someone with her to hold her hand made, adding: My fear is for those women who no longer have that support and its exactly why I urge the government to hold out for as long as they can to ensure that visitors can come to expectant mums scans and to tackle the cause of why stillbirths have doubled during this lockdown.
