Opening up on her own experience, Coleen revealed she suffered from a miscarriage not long after welcoming son Jake.

“But I was horrified at the doctor that came to my house. We’re talking 20 or so years ago so hopefully it’s different now.”

Coleen, 56, went on: “He came to my house, he didn’t know that I haven’t planned this baby forever.

“He literally walked in, put his hands on my stomach and said, ‘Yes, you’ve lost your baby. Just go to the doctor tomorrow, and they can they can give you a scrape.'”

The musician went on to explain how the incident impacted her at the time.

“That’s what he said, and left my house,” Coleen added.

“I sat there and thought ‘he doesn’t know that he hasn’t just absolutely devastated lives’. He had no feeling at all, it was just ‘Yeah, whatever, nature’s way.’ I am glad it’s definitely changed from there.”

Coleen’s sister also suffered a miscarriage

During the segment, Coleen went on to reveal that her sister, Bernie, also experienced a miscarriage.

She recalled how the loss affected her sister’s husband Steve, admitting: “It hit him so hard. We didn’t know at the time because they went away very privately.”

Coleen is mum to Shane Nolan, 32, Jake Roche, 28, and Ciara Fensome, 20.
