Veteran Hollywood actress Sharon Stone has spoken out about her nine miscarriages for the first time.
The actress revealed her loss while commenting on a People Instagram post where Dancing With The Stars singer Peta Murgatroyd opened up about losing a pregnancy with husband Maks Chmerkovskiy.
The revelation came after Murgatroyd, 35, told how she discovered she had lost her pregnancy while Chmerkovskiy, 42, was away in Ukraine.
Speaking of her experience, Sharon said:
“We as women have no forum to discuss the depth of this loss. I have lost nine children to miscarriage,’ Stone wrote.

“It’s not nothing, physically or emotionally.
“Yet we are made to feel like it is something to bear alone and secretly with a sort of sense of failure. Instead of receiving the compassion, empathy and healing that we so badly need.
“The health and welfare of women left to the care of male ideology has become lax at best, ignorant in fact and violently oppressive in the effort.”
