Sharon Stone is opening up about losing nine children through miscarriages.

The Emmy Award-winning actress and activist recalled the physical and emotional toll caused by the miscarriages when commenting on a recent interview with professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd published by People.

Earlier last week, Murgatroyd told the magazine that she’d suffered a miscarriage when her husband, dancer and TV personality Maks Chmerkovskiy, was in Ukraine.

Stone shared her own story writing in a comment on People’s Instagram post that women are felt to be guilty when such a traumatic event happens, and even talking about it can be difficult.

“We, as females don’t have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss. I lost nine children by miscarriage,” the 64-year-old Hollywood star wrote.

“It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure [,] instead of receiving the much-needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need,” she wrote.

Stone, the mother of three adopted sons, concluded her post by noting the “violent oppression” that can occur when decisions about women’s health are driven by a male perspective.

“Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology has become lax at best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in effort,” she wrote. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
