Being a parent is never easy. But, what is even more difficult is when losing your child. Miscarriage is a living nightmare for both parents. While the parents grief their unborn child, it is the reaction of the society that turns the tragedy even more painful.
From poking relatives to online trollers, our society not only acts in a cruel fashion but also shows no empathy to the grieving parents.
Recently actor Ankita Bhargav posted a powerful message, opening up about her experience of miscarriage.
Actress Ankita Bhargava and actor Karan Patel welcomed their daughter, Mehr, in December last year. But two years ago, Ankita suffered a miscarriage and lost her first child. While sharing the grief and how she & Karan overcame it, Ankita shared her personal experience in a long post on Instagram.
“Two years ago on this day, I miscarried. I got my 20 week anmaly scan done, Got my fit to fly ertificate from gyanc asI was supposed to fly to Thailand for an ad shoot along with my mother. I was happy and I was healthy. And just like that I miscarried!

There was nothing wrong that I had done or there was nothing wrong with my body and most importantly there was nothing wrong with my unborn child too!
Just that, my first child, came into this world way too early to meet me! But I didn’t even get to see my body’s face! We had prayed for that child! Prayed very hard!”

At IFORHER, we are heartbroken to know how she was trolled and harassed online when she was grieving for the loss of her child. Incidents like these make us wonder if these trolls even deserve to be called humans. It not only left us heartbroken but also ashamed that we are a part of society, where some elements could be so cruel.
We wish Ankita and Karan a happy and exciting parenting journey and hope her inspiring story will give a ray of hope to many new moms, who lost their child too soon!
