“Six years ago, when I was trying to start our family, I had an ectopic pregnancy. Thanks to the prompt medical care, doctors saved my fallopian tubes, which allowed me to have two healthy pregnancies,” she explained.

An ectopic pregnancy, according to the Mayo Clinicis ‘when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus.’

It usually occurs in one of the fallopian tubes, but it can also occur in other parts of the body, such as on an ovary or in the abdominal cavity.

The fertilized egg cannot survive outside the womb and, if left untreated, the ‘growing tissue can cause life-threatening bleeding’.

About a year after her ectopic pregnancy, Conrad gave birth to her first child, son Liam James, in 2017. Two years later, she and her husband welcomed their second son, Charlie Wolf.

Conrad felt inspired to share her story after reading about another woman’s near-fatal experience with an ectopic pregnancy after Roe v. Wade’s shocking turnaround.

By the way, Conrad noted that the doctor was concerned about the ramifications of using “dilation and curettage (D&G)” as a “tool to diagnose ectopic pregnancy.”

“I’m so grateful that they could always safely receive the care they needed and were free to make their own decisions,” the fashion designer wrote.

Knowing how divisive a topic can be, Conrad concluded her post by encouraging her nearly 6 million followers to engage in “respectful” dialogue going forward.

“I hope one day we will be in a place where every woman has access to the health care she needs and the freedom to decide what happens to her own body,” concluded the mother of two.

Talking about abortion is difficult. It can be scary and sad and confusion, and it divides us. But we must continue to talk – and listen – in a respectful way, especially when we disagree.

“My hope is that one day we will be in a place where every woman has access to the health care she needs and the freedom to decide what happens to her own body,” concluded the mother of two.

Conrad is one of many celebrities who have used their social platforms to express outrage and share stories following the Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling to overthrow Roe v. Wade after nearly 50 years.

‘The Constitution grants no right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” said the decision, written by conservative judge Samuel Alito.

“Guided by the history and tradition that map out the essential components of the nation’s concept of ordered freedom, the Court finds that the Fourteenth Amendment clearly does not protect the right to abortion.”

Abortion was automatically banned in 18 US states once Roe v. Wade was quashed, thanks to specially designed “trigger laws” and landmark bans that were automatically reintroduced after Friday’s ruling.
