The Originals' Claire Holt Suffers Miscarriage - Read Her Heartbreaking Message

Claire Holt has shared the tragic news that she suffered a miscarriage in a heartbreaking post on her Instagram account.

The 29-year-old The Originals actress revealed that just 10 days ago, she was undergoing a D&C procedure (also known as a dilation and curettage). Claire made the brave decision to share her story so soon after she and her fiance, Andrew Joblon, suffered the loss.

“I took this photo 10 days ago, as I waited for surgery after my sweet little baby lost its heartbeat. I sent it to my fiancé in the waiting room to show him that I was ok. I wasn’t. I’ve never felt more broken in my life. I debated sharing this so soon and I’m still frightened about making such a private struggle public, but I’m doing it anyway because it’s important,” Claire began.

“After my D & C, I spent hours on the internet searching for women who had been through it. I was desperate to find someone, anyone, who could relate to what I was feeling. Someone to tell me that the depression and hopelessness were normal. That it wasn’t my fault. That I wasn’t broken forever. I found a community of women who shared my exact experience. Who were open and vulnerable about miscarriage, something that isn’t often or openly discussed. It breaks my heart to think that losing a baby feels like something we have to keep to ourselves. Why is it any different than the death of a loved one? How is it any less meaningful? Here is what I have learned as I begin to crawl out of the dark hole: support is everything. I could not have survived this without the unconditional love of my partner. Despite his pain, he was my rock and my safety net. I will never know how to thank him. I also found that opening up to people is crucial. As soon as I told my story, almost everyone I spoke to told me theirs – their own, their wife’s, their sister’s. So many people go through it and understand the breadth of pain, yet so few people talk about it. Finally, I want to share a blog post that resonated with every part of me. You can find the link in my bio, @leandramcohen of @manrepeller articulates the emotional rollercoaster with an eloquence that I could never possess. To anyone out there who has been through a miscarriage, I understand you. I share every bit of your pain and you are not alone. Please be kind to yourself and I hope that you will be comfortable sharing your story too,” Claire revealed.

Our thoughts are with Claire and Andrew during this difficult time.

    have no idea who this woman is and i’m sorry she had a miscarriage but i find posts like this are for attention and exploitative. women have miscarriages all the time and deal with it in private

    She announced her engagement while she was still married to someone else, and now she’s documenting her miscarriage. I feel for her, but her life looks hectic and unstable. Some things should be kept private.
