Jana Kramer took to social media this weekend to share the sad news that she has suffered a miscarriage.
“1-3. Today I am 1-3. I debated posting this for the exact reason why it’s a silent struggle. I don’t want I’m sorry or sympathy. I just don’t want to feel alone. And I know I’m not,” she wrote on Instagram next to a picture holding a sonogram. “This, unfortunately, isn’t my first loss. When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don’t tell many, we have to suffer silently…and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it’s not now.”
Jana says she’s currently “knee deep in crying,” from her loss, and adds that the reason she decided to go public is for all the other women out there who have been forced to “suffer silently.” “For the women out there who have miscarried in the past and need support and a place to grieve their little one lost or to those in the thick of it like me who are currently grieving and in pain, let us all be there for each other” she writes. “You don’t need to feel alone and maybe that’s me talking to myself but if you need a place to share, I’m here for you...and all of us are.”
Jana is mother to a one-year-old daughter Jolie, with husband Michael Caussin.
