Sharon Stone Speaks of Miscarriages

I've always thought of Sharon Stone as a beautiful actress who had it all. But even the rich and famous go through incredible challenges. Sharon Stone speaks of her miscarriages and how they affected her life. Read more:

From the article:

“I had two pregnancies that I lost in the late fifth month. And this is so awful because I had to go have surgery when my children died. This is a trauma that you just cannot bear.”

Sharon said her continuing heartbreak at the loss of her children led her to make her well-publicized comments that suggested the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake was “karma” for the way China has treated Tibet. She explained to Prestige magazine:

“I was in some kind of crazyville. The horrific loss of those people’s children caused me tremendous grief. I was relating to this earthquake like some kind of crazy mother.

“In that moment, I was so grief-stricken, and I was really relating to their grief. I had lost children myself. All of that was really heavy upon me. I was really speaking as a heartbroken mother.”

Is There A Connection Between Race and Perinatal Mortality?

I never would have predicted that certain racial groups may be predisposed to a higher rate of pregnancy complications. However the article below found a greater risk of perinatal mortality in South Asian and black women. Read more:


Risk Of Birth Complications Varies Between Racial Groups (www.sciencedaily.com

From the article:

...evidence shows that the average length of gestation varies between racial groups. For example, it is shorter in South Asian and black women, suggesting that complications may occur before the 41 week induction point in these women.

Researchers from London and Bristol tested this theory by studying whether the risks of post-term birth complications increased earlier during pregnancy in South Asian and black women compared with white women.

Their study involved over 197,000 white, South Asian and black women who were expecting their first child and who delivered a single baby weighing at least 500 grams at 24 to 43 weeks.

They found that the perinatal mortality patterns differed significantly with racial group. At every stage of gestation, perinatal mortality was highest in South Asian women, and from term onwards, the upswing in risk occurred earliest and steepest in South Asian women, then black women, followed by white women.

The authors say their findings indicate that there are genetic variations in gestational length and argue that increased foetal surveillance and growth monitoring from 40, rather than 41, weeks' gestation is needed for South Asian and black women.

Life After Miscarriage

You are not alone if you are feeling the pain and sorrow after a miscarriage. I recall my first miscarriage after getting pregnant with twins (my first failed IVF)...I cried for months. I can't remember ever crying so long over anything. Here is another woman's story of miscarriage:

Life After Miscarriage (www.helium.com)

From the article:

A doctor came in and quite seriously and studiously became examining me with the wand. I cried, fearing the worst. And then, it came. He said "I'm sorry to tell you that your baby has no heartbeat". Those words still echo in my head six months later.

I ran crying from the room with the gel still all over my large tummy. I don't know where I was trying to get to or where I would have gone. I ran crying from the mall and out into the parking lot, past our car and kept going. My husband finally caught up with me as my body was racked with spasms from the sorrow...


...When we arrived at our doctor's office, we were immediately ushered into a room. It was unbearable to see all those happy, pregnant women in the waiting room. The doctor came in and said something stupid like "Well, this is a surprise. This hardly ever happens". What a schmuck. She went on to tell us that I needed to be hospitalized for a D&E surgery as soon as the hospital had a spot open for us. She told me that I was at an extremely high risk of miscarrying "naturally" and to go home and wait for the call or something to happen. She even asked me if I was okay. Okay? Of course not. I was a walking coffin. My life had been torn to shreds in a matter of moments. She showed no sympathy as she told us I may have to wait up to two weeks to be hospitalized.
