This mum and her daughter both have a rare condition which hinders the ability for babies to develop during pregnancy, leading to them having a total of 16 miscarriages.
When a couple first discovers they're pregnant, one of the first emotions they will feel is joy. Many will likely want to shout it from the rooftops. Tell their friends, family, and basically anyone who will listen that they are having a baby. A completely natural reaction, but there is no way of knowing how your news will affect others.
Many people can't become pregnant or may have been trying for months to no avail. The news that someone close to them has become pregnant, especially if it was with relative ease, can be heartbreaking. Yes, they'll be happy for you, but for them, it will have them asking all sorts of questions. What's wrong with them? Why are they finding it so hard?
Some women may fall pregnant, but lose the baby before they're born. Anyone who has suffered a miscarriage will know how emotionally debilitating it is. For a mom and daughter in the UK, the heartbreak of miscarriage became commonplace reports, Metro. Between them, they have suffered 16. Karen Soulard had seven, and her daughter Sarah Pearce has had nine.
The heartbreaking number of miscarriages the mom and daughter have suffered is due to them having a rare genetic condition called chromosomal translocation. The condition makes it hard for the baby to develop during pregnancy. For many women, the fear of having a miscarriage after suffering one or two is enough to put them off trying. However, Karen and Sarah pushed on and eventually, both of them became mothers.
Karen obviously had Sarah, and since her nine miscarriages, Sarah has had two children of her own, Lia and Fae. Sarah recalled being told countless times to try and keep her head up, and that maybe the next pregnancy would be the one. As hard as that always was to hear, now that she has two children of her own, she wants to remind women who have miscarried that those words are true. Truly inspirational women.
