Myleene Klass opens up about her multiple miscarriages

Myleene Klass has candidly discussed the trauma she felt after suffering four miscarriages.

The former Hear’Say singer, 43, opened up to Newsnight about the devastating experiences and says she has three children but she is a mum-of-seven despite four of her children sadly not being born alive.

The musician, broadcaster and classical pianist emotionally discussed the horrific feeling she went through during the medical procedures she had to undergo.

She told Emily Maitlis : “You walk down to theatre, you are wearing the exact same clothes that you wear when you give birth, but there’s nothing at the end. It’s horrific.”

She told the presenter how anyone who has been through the horrible experience will say it “turns your world inside out” and can “turn you into someone you don’t even recognise.

“I think it definitely changes how you view the world,” she confessed. “I don’t ask anybody anymore if they have a family, I must seem like the most disinterested person.”

Myleene admits she would prefer to ask someone about the weather as she feels family-based questions can often be “loaded”, especially for the one in four people who have suffered a miscarriage.

When Emily described the language around miscarriages as “knotty” with words such as “failure” or “a failed pregnancy” Myleene said: “That’s the polite term.

“If you have to sign a form for a D&C, you have to decide what you wish to do with the product of pregnancy.”

She explained how it’s “life admin” until the very end. as you have to tick a box on what you would prefer to happen.

She slammed the process of women being handed a form while on their way to theatre.

When asked how she knew what to do with the form, the singer said: “I couldn’t write the form. I couldn’t fill the form in. My partner had to do it for me.

“How do you choose? Which box do you tick? You enter a hospital still with a baby and you leave just with your paperwork.”

Myleene was talking ahead of her documentary Myleene Klass: Miscarriage & Me which aired last night.

She has calling for more open and honest conversations around pregnancy loss, with women having to have three miscarriages in a row before it is considered a medical issue.

She says that while doctors might not include it on a woman’s medical records, a miscarriage is a form of trauma.

She also opened up on the constant feeling of “terror” she faced during her pregnancy with son Apollo, prior to his birth in 2019.
