Miscarriage: Our Story left viewers heartbroken as celebrities including Corrie actress Jane Danson, EastEnders’ Lacey Turner and others opened up about the grief of baby loss.
The documentary, which aired on Channel 5 last night (Thursday, October 15) to coincide with Baby Loss Awareness Week, saw Jane admit feeling as though she was in some way to blame.
What did Jane Danson say on Channel 5’s Miscarriage: Our Story?
The Leanne Battersby star said on the programme: “I was physically broken… something was wrong and it was my fault.”
Jane learned three months into her third pregnancy that her baby did not have a heartbeat.
She explained: “At our 12-week scan, I remember lying down and she [the consultant] said, ‘I won’t turn the screen around but don’t be worried’. And then the room went really quiet and I just knew that something wasn’t right.”
“I remember she said, ‘You are pregnant‘ and that’s when my heart just sank, because I knew that it had probably gone wrong or the baby had died, and then they confirmed that was it.
“But she didn’t turn the screen around, I always remember this.
“I just wanted to see. Whatever stage it was at, I just wanted to see.”
