Meghan McCain, one of the co-hosts of daytime talk show, The View, has revealed that she suffered a miscarriage.
"I knew I was pregnant before I formally knew I was pregnant. My body told me in all the ways women are familiar with. It told me in the same ways that I was miscarrying. The confirmation from my doctor came the day of that photo shoot, at the worst possible time," she wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times.
"I missed a few days of work. It wasn’t many, but given the job I have, it was enough to spark gossip about why I would be away from “The View.” This was not supposed to be public knowledge. I have had my share of public grief and public joy. I wish this grief — the grief of a little life begun and then lost — could remain private," she continued.
"I am not hiding anymore. My miscarriage was a horrendous experience and I would not wish it upon anyone."
McCain reveals that at first she blamed herself before realizing that it was not her fault.
"When my father passed, I took refuge in the hope that someday we would be united in the hereafter. I still imagine that moment, even as I trust that a loving God will see it happen. Now I imagine it a bit differently. There is my father — and he is holding his granddaughter in his hands," she concluded the article.
