Dancing with the Stars pros Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently sat down with PEOPLE to share the challenges they have been having while trying to expand their family.

In the interview, Murgatroyd reveals that she has suffered three miscarriages, all while husband Maks was away. The pro dancer has now started IVF and hopes that sharing her story will help others to feel less alone.

"Allowing myself to tell my story to help even one individual who may be feeling a little ashamed, a little embarrassed, about their situation.... I feel like this has done its job."
