Never forget. Hilaria Baldwin shared a sonogram video on Instagram two weeks after confirming she suffered a miscarriage.
“What you are seeing in the video is the first sonogram of the baby I lost before we could see and hear the heart,” the yoga instructor, 35, captioned the footage on Wednesday, April 23. “In the lower left corner you can see the flicker. I don’t have a video of the heartbeat we witnessed a few times before it stopped. I want to share this because I feel like this little soul was mighty in the wave it provoked.”
The fitness guru added: “I am physically starting to feel like myself again. Emotionally I am OK too. when we choose to become parents, we take a big risk with our hearts. … This time, when I opened my heart up to another baby, he or she didn’t stay very long. But I love this little soul deeply and wholly.”
The Living Clearly Method author is already seeing the positive impact that sharing her story has had. “We all have a purpose in life, and I believe my little one left positivity in its short life,” Baldwin wrote. “I felt a deep provocation to share what was going on and, in being so open, some great conversations emerged. Creating a positive from a negative, this little flicker of life left its mark.”
One week before confirming that she and her husband, Alec Baldwin, had lost their fifth child, the Mallorca, Spain, native wrote on Instagram that she was “most likely experiencing a miscarriage.”
“I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage [sic] and remove the stigma from it,” she captioned the April 4 mirror selfie. “There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine — and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore.”
Hilaria and the Saturday Night Live star, 61, already share Carmen, 5, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 11 months. They tied the knot in 2012 and renewed their vows five years later.
