"So this Thanksgiving, as we plan for a holiday unlike any before - many of us separated from our loved ones, alone, sick, scared, divided and perhaps struggling to find something, anything, to be grateful for - let us commit to asking others, 'Are you OK?'", she wrote.
It was this very question, Markle discovered, that is the first step towards healing in nearly any situation.
Meghan also remarked that miscarriage is not uncommon but remains a taboo, shameful topic, "perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning".
The duchess said she chose to share her experience to break taboos about the subject and to encourage people to check up on their loved ones, who may be going through trauma.
"I was exhausted. I was breastfeeding our infant son, and I was trying to keep a courageous face in the very public eye", she wrote. "I was trying to say that those who are criticising are criticising the method of delivery", he told Insider. It was my first pregnancy. Amid warming relations between the U.S. and Taiwan, Hsiao Bi-khim, the island's representative in Washington, spoke with Blinken by phone last week to congratulate Biden on his election win. I was 13 wks. I still think about that baby. Who knew she could flat-out write?
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, on Wednesday revealed she had a miscarriage in July this year, giving a personal account of the traumatic experience in the hope of helping others. Speaking on it, helps to de-stigmatize the experience for those of us who know first hand. Healthy pregnancies can occur later or before the miscarriage, but it can still be emotionally wrenching. THAT info astounded me.
The equestrian also highlighted how "time can be a great healer" and baby loss might be too painful for some to discuss immediately after, but with some time they might be able to speak about it.
"'Are you OK?' a journalist asked me".
The duchess suffered her miscarriage in July during a busy period in her legal battle with Associated Newspapers Ltd (ANL).
After reflecting on numerous ongoing issues which have happened in 2020, from Breonna Taylor's death to the Covid-19 pandemic, Meghan ended her personal essay urging people to ask one another, "Are you ok?"
As with so many celebrities, Meghan is a gallery of public images, real or imagined.
Mrs Sheppard said she was "thrown into depression" following her second miscarriage, being prescribed antidepressants and referred for eight weeks of pregnancy loss counselling.
