Twenty per cent of all pregnancies end with a miscarriage. 

And yet for many people it remains a taboo subject. 

Radio DJ Sharyn Casey has penned an emotional blog post about experiencing multiple miscarriages within the same year in order to encourage other Kiwi women going through similar experiences to do the same. 

We now want to give you the same opportunity, to share your experiences and help others understand the pain of losing a baby during pregnancy.

Have you or your partner had a miscarriage? How did you cope emotionally and physically? What impact did it have on your life? Do you have any advice for others navigating this heartache?
