“It’s no small matter, physically or emotionally,” the star – who has three sons through adoption – continued.
“Still, we get the sense that it’s something to wear alone and covertly with a kind of sense of failure. Instead of receiving the much-needed compassion and empathy and healing that we so desperately need.”
“The health and wellbeing of women left in the care of male ideology has become lax, ignorant and violently oppressive at best,” she wrote, concluding her message.
The revelation came after Murgatroyd, 35, spoke about her recent loss and how she found out she lost her pregnancy while husband Maks, 42, was away in Ukraine.

The star explained that she went through ’36 hours of labor alone’ after losing a baby when she was five and a half months pregnant, revealing that nurses stayed with her and she felt a ‘strong sense of understanding’.

She said: “It’s been a devastating experience and I have to say I was very grateful to Chrissy Teigen for allowing us to publicly share what she was going through.”
“When I lost my last baby, and then went back to the hospital and had to work 36 hours alone to give birth of course – and the nurses who had been with me in the hospital two days earlier when she had the last baby came in and sat with me on their day off.
“I really felt such a strong sense of sisterhood and understanding. Because then I would have been alone. And that’s such a lonely feeling anyway.’
The actress praised Vanessa Kirby, who played character Martha who lost her baby in a tragic home birth in Netflix film Pieces of a Woman: “I was so grateful to Vanessa Kirby for making Pieces of a Woman.
