This week I am hearing lots about the storyline involving Steve & Michelle in Coronation Street and their miscarriage.
Everything I have heard so far has been nothing but praise but due to my own recent miscarriage at the end of November and the fact that it should be my darling daughter Millie’s 5th birthday tomorrow, I am not in the right frame of mind to watch… but I will.
I will ensure that I watch the scenes at some point as I do like to see how the media handles and potrays sensitive issues such as these and I think that it is fabulous that they are covering this storyline. Utter respect for Kym Marsh this week as it must have brought some awful memories back for her after her own personal loss many years ago.
I really do hope that the media does continue to show these storylines and deal with these taboo issues, because that’s what they are , taboo.
Simon Gregson has already endured the storyline with his depression which he portrayed so well and to tackle another taboo issue so soon after that, well, what a star and he has also spoken out about his own personal pregnancy loss too which I think is amazing for a man to do too.

Unfortunately, I know exactly how it feels to have experience of all these issues, child loss, miscarriage and mental health problems and this is why I will carry on talking, carry on making a stand and carry on writing about it.
Huge hugs to anyone out there who has their own personal experience of baby/child loss.
