Hillary Scott, the singer of the band Lady Antebellum, broke down on television as she spoke for the first time about her miscarriage. In an interview, the American country star burst into tears as she said she had a miscarriage last year as she explained the inspiration for one of the band’s new songs.
She said that the heart-breaking event changed her views about motherhood and she said she hugs her two-year-old daughter a lot tighter now.
In an Interview, she said, while bursting into tears: “Last fall, I went through a miscarriage, goodness gracious.” She said that what happened was not talked about in public and everybody would expect that they everything will be normal sooner.
“This is something is still not talked about very often. I also feel like there’s this pressure that you’re just supposed to be able to snap your fingers and continue to walk through life like it never happened.”
She said, “’I wrote this song in the middle of experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage so I was at my most raw place that I could’ve ever been when this song truly poured out of me.”
Lady Antebellum will be going on a Summer tour with Hillary. She said she wrote her new song Thy Will while ‘experiencing everything that comes with a miscarriage.’ She added: ‘So it was my most raw place that I could’ve ever been when this song truly poured out of me.’
A survey last year in Obstetrics and Gynecology was published and according to it most people wrongly thought miscarriage only happened in five percent or fewer of pregnancies.In fact, according to the American Pregnancy Association, the chance of having a miscarriage is an average of between 15 and 20 percent for a healthy woman in their childbearing years.
