The deep pain I felt after losing four pregnancies in a row (and a terrible but beautiful moment)

Tulip Mazumdar

The BBC’s Tulip Mazumdar has reported extensively on maternal health and the issues women face around the world. In this note she reflects on her experience, and the loss of her pregnancies.

You never think it will happen to you. But then you’re sitting in scan room 9, staring at your bright blue socks, wiggling your toes against the white hospital sheets, waiting for the sonographer to say something.

But it says nothing. Instead, call someone else. And in the split second before he speaks, you realize that your world is about to go into free fall.

I’m so sorry (he says quietly).
