Loosing a baby is not easy for any one and the experience can have various effects on its victim. In order to inspire and help other mothers, 41 year old mother and super model Gale has decided to speak in detail on her own experience with miscarriage and how it has affected her current pregnancy.

Speaking to Monty Dimond on Show and Tell, Gale explained how her current pregnancy had been more “daunting” than with her firstborn son, River.

“Last year having gone through a miscarriage, that was pretty obviously upsetting,” she said.

“So going in to this pregnancy, even when we were trying it’s just so daunting.

“With River I didn’t even really think about anything going wrong … I knew that … anyone can miscarriage, it’s hugely common. But my mind didn’t go there that much.

“Whereas this time it’s been ‘Is it growing enough?’ before every scan it was ‘Am I going to see … is the heartbeat going to be there?’ …‘Am I going to get bad news again?’

‘It’s just an underlying little worry there that I wish wasn’t there’.

Gale, who has a three-year-old son with her partner AFL player Shaun Hampson, explained that every pregnancy scan starts off with nerves and her heart in her throat.

“Every time I had a scan and got the all clear … OK I have to wait another two weeks,” she said.

“Stress is the worst thing I can do for myself and for my body.

“I really tried to put it all aside and so it’s been a very different pregnancy in that regard.

“Even now I’m still … almost at that point where I’m nearly in the second trimester and it should all be happy days … it’s just an underlying little worry there that I wish wasn’t there.

“But I think it’s natural after going through something like that.”

Gale opened up about her loss in January to Instyle Magazine, hoping her experience would ease the stigma around talking about miscarriages.

During the interview, Gale revealed how she knew in her bones something wasn’t right with her unborn baby.

“I went into the scan and the obstetrician moved the ultrasound around my belly,” she said.

“At one point he just stopped and said he was sorry but the baby was gone.”

Gale said she felt frustrated when people quizzed her or others on pregnancy plans, especially following her miscarriage — explaining “the last thing” she wanted to do was talk about conception.

“I’d just gone through this procedure … and the news of learning this little bub had not made it,” she told Dimond.

“The last thing I wanted to do was talk about conception or pregnancy.

“But I wasn’t in the space where I could go ‘actually I just had a miscarriage two days ago’ because you know what that’s going to do to that person who has asked the question.

“It’s just not great.”

“It’s such a private intimate part of your life deciding that you’re going to create another human with your partner that it really is no ones business,” she said.

“I would never ask someone ‘when are you going to have a baby’ or ‘when is the next one coming’ um ‘why haven’t you had a baby?’

“People do it so often now, I think it’s just such a common thing to ask. People don’t think there could be underlying issues going on.

“You do put a lot of pressure on someone when you ask that question because there may be a reason why they don’t want to answer it.”

    I had a miscarriage before and it’s nothing to play with pain, crying, and then the feeling of being parents and or pregnant and it’s just taken away from you.

    I’ve had a miscarriage before, nothing but pain and a big heartache after going through that process… wouldn’t want someone to go through this pain but us women go through it all the time. It’s hurtful too us mothers knowing stuff like that can happen 🙁

    I had a miscarriage before, and also had to deliver my baby. Its a empty feeling and it also effected my other pregnacies… made me more alert and nervous all at the same time.

    I’ve had two miscarriages in the past and I was always told I would never carry full term!! I went through so much pain, agony, and depression my whole adult life because I was convinced I would never experience being a birth mother! It was the worse news of my life! Well the beginning of last year a few months after my 33rd birthday, I found out I was pregnant again. All I prayed for was to carry full term and have a healthy baby and sure enough, I have a beautiful 3 month old daughter!! She is my miracle and I couldn’t be more happier with my life!! So I always tell people “Always keep the faith and never give up hope” God has a plan for all of us and I’m a blessed mother ❤️

    Miscarriages are very hard to deal with. I’ve had one and it still pains me, especially when others knew you were expecting.

    That is a woman’s greatest fear, so I understand all of your worries. However like myself when I was pregnant with my daughter I was scared as well, but a close friend had to constantly remind me to enjoy my pregnancy because the baby feels what I feel so that helped me to be more positive.

    I had a miscarriage 3 yrs before my daughter was born and during my pregnancy with her, I also remember going into each ultrasound anticipating hearing her heartbeat. Everyday sort of obsessing over feeling her movement. Now she’s 5 months old and beautiful and healthy!! I love her sooo much.

    I can understand the way she feels, and I couldn’t imagine losing my child.

    I had a miscarriage June of last year . From the beginning it didnt seem like I was going to stay pregnant . It seemed like my Dr at the time had no sympathy for me . I felt so alone . After I lost my baby I tried to seem ok but I wasnt . Even though I was only 5 – 6 weeks it still hurt , it still was my baby .
