Made In Chelsea’s Louise Thompson Reveals She Suffered A Miscarriage

Louise Thompson has revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.

In an emotional Instagram post, the Made in Chelsea star shared a photo of her baby bump alongside a second snap of a positive pregnancy test - the first time Louise has publicly confirmed she's expecting.

But the 30-year-old also revealed that she suffered a baby loss earlier this year, and said she wanted to remind fans that not everything is as rosy as it seems on social media.

The influencer began by mentioning her Instagram feed is often filled with pictures of people who are "loved up, happy as can be, getting engaged, buying their first house, having intimate weddings, getting their dream hob, announcing pregnancies, and other momentous occasions!"

She then said: "Whilst all those incredible things are happening for people there is also a great deal of SH*T going on behind closed doors - A side that you might not see."

She wrote: "I don't know why I feel the need to keep justifying this post, I definitely don't, I think I'm a bit scared because it's so raw and slightly out of my comfort zone.

"I guess it's also because there is no easy way to say it, nor any way to sugar coat it, but earlier this year we lost our baby and it was HARD."

Louise has appeared in Made In Chelsea since its first series in 2011. Over the years she has become one of the E4 show's main characters alongside her brother Sam Thompson.

She also explained how speaking to her friends and family about her miscarriage helped her.

She added: "Having opened up to a few friends I realised that there are quite a few others who have gone through something similar.

"I found it very comforting to talk to them about their experiences of loss and grief, and I also found it incredibly comforting to learn that there isn't really much you can do to prevent it from happening.

"I don't feel any guilt or blame for what happened to me. It just wasn't meant to be, and hopefully, it will create space for something beautiful in the future.?"
