“What you are seeing in the video is the first sonogram of the baby I lost before we could see and hear the heart,” the yoga instructor, 35, captioned the footage on Wednesday, April 23. “In the lower left corner you can see the flicker. I don’t have a video of the heartbeat we witnessed a few times before it stopped. I want to share this because I feel like this little soul was mighty in the wave it provoked.”
The fitness guru added: “I am physically starting to feel like myself again. Emotionally I am OK too. when we choose to become parents, we take a big risk with our hearts. … This time, when I opened my heart up to another baby, he or she didn’t stay very long. But I love this little soul deeply and wholly.”
The Living Clearly Method author is already seeing the positive impact that sharing her story has had. “We all have a purpose in life, and I believe my little one left positivity in its short life,” Baldwin wrote. “I felt a deep provocation to share what was going on and, in being so open, some great conversations emerged. Creating a positive from a negative, this little flicker of life left its mark.”
“I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage [sic] and remove the stigma from it,” she captioned the April 4 mirror selfie. “There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine — and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore.”
