“I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them…we sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken,” she explained.

“That’s one of the reasons why I think it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen.”

The full interview will air during an ABC News special called Becoming Michelle: A First Lady’s Journey With Robin Roberts on Sunday, November 11 at 9 p.m. ET.

Watch a preview below.

    Not everyone opened up so easily about personal pain prior to social media.
    College doesn’t teach someone everything. All doctors don’t know what a lawyer does just as all lawyers don’t know what a doctor does.
    The woman didn’t say she’d never heard of a miscarriage prior but that she didn’t understand as much as she has now come to understand.
