Brynn Gingras Miscarriage
In 2020, Brynn suffered a miscarriage. Talking of the terrible experience, she wrote,
‘I spent the day lining up interviews, talking to real-life, jolly Santa’s from around the Northeast. It was expectedly refreshing. But even that wasn’t greater than what I was about to do on Thursday. I had a doctor’s appointment scheduled to see my unborn baby for the first time, hear the heartbeat and get that coveted ultrasound photograph that I planned to send in a Christmas card to my in-laws in Ireland.’
‘I asked the doctor, “can I FaceTime my husband now?” He responded, “let’s just make sure everything is ok first.” For some reason, those words immediately nicked my heart. In my mind, there was no possibility of anything going wrong. The appointment went downhill from there.’
‘I stared at the ceiling, feeling the doctor feverishly move the wand around my stomach as if he lost something. Soon he softly uttered the words I truly didn’t expect to hear — “I didn’t find a heartbeat”.’
