British actress Kate Beckinsale has signed up as an ambassador for leading baby loss and grief support charity, The Mariposa Trust, after publicly revealing her own experience.

 

At the start of the month, Kate 47, took to Instagram to speak out about her own pain. This was in light of Chrissy Teigen’s recent tragedy.

 

Hollywood screen star Kate will join the likes of Jools Oliver, Kym Marsh, Nigella Lawson, Baroness Floella Benjamin, and Sally Phillips in helping to raise the profile of the charity’s work in supporting anyone affected by baby loss.Kate Beckinsale Becomes Ambassador For Baby Loss And Grief Support Charity

In making the announcement, which coincides with Baby Loss Awareness Week, founder and CEO Zoe Clark-Coates said in a statement: “Baby loss is a huge issue, not only in the UK but globally with an estimated 38,000,000 losses each year.

Sadly, many of these people have little or no access to support and often suffer in silence, feeling isolated and alone”.

At the start of October, Kate Beckinsale revealed that she secretly suffered the heartbreaking loss of a baby.  The actress spoke in defence of Chrissy and her husband John Legend’s choice to share the news publicly. She also spoke candidly about how she was forced to deal with her own pain privately.

Sharing an inspirational quote, Kate Beckinsale shared: “Years ago, I lost a baby at 20 weeks. I had managed to keep my pregnancy quiet and I absolutely collapsed inside and no one would have known”.

She started her post defending Chrissy, writing: “I’ve noticed people criticizing @chrissyteigen for sharing deeply intimate photos of the loss of her baby.

“As if there’s some protocol during the soul-scouring calamity that, if not observed, emboldens people who do not know her or her family to say how she should be handling the unimaginable.

Years ago, I lost a baby at 20 weeks. I had managed to keep my pregnancy quiet and I absolutely collapsed inside and no one would have known.

“There is grief, shame and shock so often that come with an experience like this.  Plus the heartbreak of your body continuing, after the loss, to act as if it had a child to nurture. Your milk comes in, with no one to feed.

It can be the loneliest, the most soul-destroying period of time. Particularly if you are not in the position of having an emotionally connected, supportive partner like Chrissy has.

I think it’s an honour to be allowed into another person’s grief, especially with a subject like this. Which so often puts a woman into that hall of mirrors state of life continuing as if the world hasn’t, for you, come to a bloody and terrible halt.

Sending so much love to the Legend family. But also so much to the women and couples who have kept it quiet and suffered. I know there are so many.

Thank you @chrissyteigen for making sure it is abundantly clear how devastating this is. How life-changing it can be without support.”Kate Beckinsale penned.
