Jana Kramer is opening up about suffering from a devastating miscarriage exactly one year ago. The Dancing With the Stars alum shared a sweet photo of her 3-month-old son Jace on Instagram and wrote a message of support for other women who may be suffering.
“A year ago today, I got the news that I had yet again another miscarriage. It was after an IVF cycle. The embryo was a boy and it was the last embryo we had. I was devastated,” she captioned the photo on Thursday, February 28.
“I felt like I failed as a women [sic], and as a wife. Ivf wasn’t an option again because it’s too expensive so I felt defeated.”
Kramer and her husband Mike Caussin already had their 3-year-old daughter Jolie Rae, but the couple still wanted to have more children.
“I felt blessed that we at least had our Jolie Rae but our family just didn’t feel complete yet. So I prayed. Boy did I pray for you. And a month later Jace was created,” she wrote.
“Jace we prayed so hard for you and through all the tears I now know I went through it all to get to you.”
The former One Tree Hill star also let other women suffering that they’re not alone in their pregnancy struggles.
“To all the woman out there who have suffered miscarriages and still waiting for your rainbow baby, you are not alone,” she said.
“And I know nothing I say will make the yearning or pain any better but if anything know you’re not alone and that I was in the same spot a year ago. I pray you will see your silver lining too.”
Kramer welcomed her son Jace back in November and she shared the exciting news on Instagram.
“Welcome to the world, Jace Joseph Caussin. Our hearts are so full. Thank you to all of our friends and family..and all of you who have supported Mike and I, and our growing family,” she wrote.
