Whitney Port has come forward about her recent pregnancy loss.
Port, 35, revealed on the “Being Bümo” podcast with Chriselle Lim, how discovering her baby had a “chromosomal issue” is helping her grieve.
“Basically I got a D&C [dilation and curettage] and they did an autopsy, and the doctor said that it was a chromosomal issue, so the baby was not going to be a healthy baby and I felt like in that way I had a little bit of closure,” Port said.
Port shares a 3-year-old son, Sonny, with husband, Tim Rosenman.
In January, Port revealed she suffered a pregnancy loss. Additionally, she had miscarried in July of 2019.
“It felt like, ‘Why is this happening to me? Was there anything that I did wrong? Is there anything wrong with my body?'” Port said in the interview.
“Now that this has happened twice, you know I think that’s sometimes one of the first things that we think about when this stuff happens to us, especially as women and being such harsh critics on ourselves.”
Port has been married to Rosenman, a producer, since 2015.
She continued on, saying: “Then you realize, no, this is not something that you have any control over and you need to immediately release that part.”
Port goes on to say how she has gained a new perspective when it comes to her recent loss…
“I don’t think you’re ever fully healed after a loss. I think these losses make you into a stronger person. I don’t wish them upon anybody, but they do give you a lot of good [perspectives], and they give you a lot of time to appreciate the things that you have.”
