A 2018 report by Healthline states that between 10 and 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

Miscarriage can have long-lasting emotional repercussions and might leave a woman feeling depressed, angry, traumatised, fearful, and sometimes even guilty.

One of the celebrities who has shared about the loss of her pregnancies is actress Odette Annable.

 Odie opened up about the painful experience she has had to endure as a result of losing her three pregnancies. 

The star shared a photo which she took in December 2020 when she was 15 weeks pregnant. Sadly, shortly after that she lost the baby.

She shared the photo to commemorate what would have been her daughter's birthday. She was due to deliver on 8 June 2021. 

"NOT A PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT. The one thing that was certain was how Dave and I both felt when I found out I was pregnant. We were elated. After having two miscarriages after Charlie and after our personal journey as a couple, we finally felt like we were in the right place and our gift was this baby in my belly. I was 15 weeks pregnant when this photo was taken back in December and today would have been your due date. There was another plan and our baby is no longer with us," she wrote. 

The star added that it is important to be real with ones feelings, pain, and experiences and not only share good things on social media.

"I share this because what you see on a social media page isn’t always what’s going on in real life. My social media page consists mostly of a highlight reel. I try to keep it as authentic as I can, but I also largely focus on the positive because that feels good to me. But this is real and this is part of life. The really hard stuff that you never think or want to come your way," she wrote. 

The 'House' star says she misses the baby whom she lost.

"I miss feeling this sweet baby grow but I also know that it was a gift carrying our baby and a privilege for even the short time we spent together," she wrote. 

She thanked her husband for being her support system. 

"I have found that there are always silver linings in the hard things if you look closely. And they are without doubt my husband and my daughter. This experience has given me a new appreciation for my husband who was a rock for me and was unwavering with his support even though I know he was feeling it all as well. It made me marvel at what a miracle Charlie is. What a miracle and a blessing it is to have a healthy child. I am so grateful for my family. We love you always and forever little angel," she wrote.
