Sharon Stone has spoken for the first time about suffering nine miscarriages.
The 64-year-old “Basic Instinct” star shared her story on June 21 in a comment on an Instagram post by People magazine, which featured “Dancing With the Stars” veteran Peta Murgatroyd opening up about suffering a miscarriage while her husband and fellow dancer Maks Chmerkovskiy was in Ukraine
“We, as females don’t have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss. I lost nine children by miscarriage,” revealed Stone, who is the mother of three sons through adoption: Quinn Kelly, Laird Vonne, and Roan Joseph.
“It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure.”
She continued, “Instead of receiving the much-needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need. Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology has become lax at best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in effort.”
Stone is a mother to three sons via adoption: Quinn Kelly, 16, Laird Vonne, 17, and Roan Joseph, 22.
In the past, Stone has been open about her difficulty to conceive due to having an autoimmune disease and endometriosis.
