Ashley Graham is beloved for her honesty, and her latest essay may be her most vulnerable yet. In a powerful essay for Glamor called “After I gave birth, I had to learn to love my body,” the mum revealed not one but two major updates on her journey to welcoming twins Malachi and Roman at the beginning of this year. She revealed that she had a miscarriage before giving birth to twins and nearly died from childbirth.
“I didn’t share this until now, but I got pregnant in January 2021, on my husband’s birthday. Since it was my second pregnancy, I started showing signs early, and we were very excited. But at the end of February, I had a miscarriage,” she said.
The body activist added that it was “one of the biggest losses I’ve had in my life so far.” She added, “I can’t even understand the heartache of women who have not had children and who have had multiple miscarriages. However, the world still expects us to move on and handle our pain graciously. “
She then talked about the birth of her twins, saying that everything was fine at first. However, things went horribly wrong. The model said, “The next thing you know, I looked at my midwife and I said, ‘I’m not feeling well. I thought I needed to lie down,’ and I blacked out. “I remember seeing shadows and what appeared to be stars.”
“When I finally arrived, I looked around, and I saw everyone. They just kept telling me, ‘You’re fine. You are fine. You are fine. ‘ At that moment, they didn’t want to tell me I had lost liters of blood,” she said. “I couldn’t walk for a week. And I didn’t leave the house for almost two months. I tell you all this – in quite a detail – because I believe in the importance of honesty; revealing things about myself that I hope help others talk about what they’ve been through too. “
On February 10, Graham announced via Instagram that she and longtime husband Justin Ervin have welcomed their twin boys! Ervin and Graham also share another son, 2-year-old Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin.
These famous mothers have captured the changes of their bodies after giving birth.
