Kate Beckinsale has come out in support of Chrissy Teigen, after some social media trolls have criticized Chrissy and John Legend for sharing photos of grieving Chrissy due to pregnancy loss. Chrissy had some pregnancy-related complications resulting in excessive bleeding and was admitted to the hospital, but in the end doctors could not save the baby, .Kate has supported Chrissy through a post on Instagram, revealing her own pregnancy loss.
She has not only conveyed her feelings through the poem but has also written a very long and heartfelt message in caption.
I’ve noticed people criticizing @chrissyteigen for sharing deeply intimate photos of the loss of her baby. As if there’s some protocol during soul-scouring calamity that, if not observed, emboldens people who do not know her or her family to say how she should be handling the unimaginable. Years ago, I lost a baby at 20 weeks. I had managed to keep my pregnancy quiet and I absolutely collapsed inside and no one would have known. There is grief, shame and shock so often that come with an experience like this, plus the heartbreak of your body continuing, after the loss, to act as if it had a child to nurture.
Going further Kate has added her experience that is rare and if you don't experience it first hand, it is very difficult to understand what someone feels after such a loss and though it hurts both the parents but the mother is reminded of the loss more often.
Your milk comes in, with no one to feed. It can be the loneliest, most soul destroying period of time, particularly if you are not in the position of having an emotionally connected, supportive partner like Chrissy has. I think it’s an honour to be allowed into another persons grief, especially with a subject like this which so often puts a woman into that hall of mirrors state of life continuing as if the world hasn’t, for you ,come to a bloody and terrible halt. Sending so much love to the Legend family
Chrissy shared the heartbreaking news posting black and white photo with a caption "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.
