Sharon Stone discusses miscarriages

Submitted to Celebrity Spotlight

Actress Sharon Stone revealed that she lost 9 children through miscarriages. She shared her story in the comments section of an interview with Peta Murgatroyd in PEOPLE.

Stone is a mother to three sons via adoption: Quinn Kelly, 16, Laird Vonne, 17, and Roan Joseph, 22.

“We, as females don’t have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss. I lost nine children by miscarriage,” Stone wrote. “It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure.”

She continued, “Instead of receiving the much needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need. Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology has become lax at best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in effort.”
