WWE's Carmella used Instagram to open up on a personal tragedy yesterday, revealing that she recently experienced a miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.

The post came on the final day of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Accompanying her update with a photograph of Carmella seemingly in a hospital bed, with a pulse oximeter attached to her finger, the star revealed that she suffered an early miscarriage in September. More recently, Carmella received treatment for an ectopic pregnancy, necessitating 12 hours in ER.

Carmella was motivated to share her story because she feels it is a topic that people should be able to speak more openly on, so women "don't blame ourselves and think there's something wrong with us."

I’ve gone back and forth with myself about posting this because I’m not looking for any sort of sympathy, but since today is the last day of Infant Loss Awareness month, I wanted to share my story. Today, I was treated for an ectopic pregnancy. I never thought something like this would happen to me, especially after suffering from an early miscarriage in September. Nothing can prepare you for this news after getting a positive pregnancy test. I was cautiously optimistic this time around after the early loss I had already experienced, but was hoping for the best. I spent 12 hours in the ER on Saturday when I started experiencing some sharp pains on my left side. After several tests and ultrasounds, I was given the devastating news that this was, in fact, an abnormal pregnancy. The reason I’m sharing all of this is because in the moment it feels so isolating. Why doesn’t anyone ever talk about this? My husband and I watched [Iliza Shlesinger's] new comedy special last week and she spoke openly about her miscarriage. I immediately burst into tears. She went on to explain that we should be speaking more openly about this topic so we, as women, don’t blame ourselves and think there’s something wrong with us. I want to do the same. I’m part of this statistic and it’s happening to me. Again, I’m not looking for sympathy, I know I’ll eventually recover from all of this mentally, physically and emotionally. For anyone dealing with ANY type of pregnancy loss, I want you to know your feelings and emotions are valid, there is NOTHING wrong with you and you are not alone.

The NHS describes an ectopic pregnancy as follows:-

An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilised egg implants itself outside of the womb, usually in one of the fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes are the tubes connecting the ovaries to the womb. If an egg gets stuck in them, it won't develop into a baby and your health may be at risk if the pregnancy continues.

A couple since 2019, Carmella and Corey Graves were married on 7 April 2022.


All at WhatCulture send our best wishes to the couple at this sad, trying time.
