Michelle’s baby loss heartache
Michelle Obama has said she felt “lost and alone” after suffering a miscarriage 20 years ago and underwent IVF to conceive her two daughters.
She told ABC in an interview aired on Good Morning America that she felt like she had “failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were, because we don’t talk about them”.
Mrs Obama, 54, said she and Barack Obama “had to do IVF” to conceive Sasha and Malia, now aged 17 and 20.
In her memoir Becoming, set to come out on Tuesday, the former first lady writes openly about everything from growing up in Chicago to confronting racism in public life.
