UKTV has commissioned a new one-off documentary on miscarriages, Myleene: Miscarriage & Me.
Having experienced her own pregnancy losses, Mylene Klass will open up on her trauma to help break the taboo that often surrounds the subject.
Klass said: "I think I needed to make this because I needed to watch this. After my miscarriages I had to try and find some answers, some peace, some solidarity with people who've been through it too.
“You just don't want to feel alone because the defining feeling of miscarriage is feeling alone."
It is estimated that around 250,000 women in the UK have a miscarriage every year. Klass herself has had four, and she is still coming to terms with the loss.
In the hour-long film, she will read from the diary that she kept to write through the trauma, including painful memories such as suffering a miscarriage while live on the radio.
Women from around the UK will also share their experiences, including Klass’ own friends and family.
Klass will also follow the charity Tommy’s campaign for more government aid for families following miscarriages.
Deputy director of commissioning and head of factual, Hilary Rosen, said: “Miscarriage is a subject that has been shrouded in taboo and secrecy for far too long.
“We are so grateful to Myleene for her highly personal, raw and honest examination of its lifelong legacy and we hope this film can spark a bigger conversation.”
Myleene: Miscarriage & Me will air on W channel during Baby Loss Awareness Week in October 2021.
