A day after The New York Times published Meghan McCain’s “horrendous” miscarriage, the View co-host is opening up about the tragedy once again via social media.

In the post, McCain details the reason why she decided to publish the essay in the first place saying she wants others to “feel less alone”. It’s a little known fact that miscarriages are a likely occurrence among women but has yet been discussed openly.

“Thank you for so many beautiful and kind responses to my New York Times @nytimes op-ed about my recent miscarriage,” McCain, 34, wrote in an Instagram post. “Ben and I are the luckiest, most incredibly blessed people in the world surrounded by love and support. My hope is by continuing to share grief and loss, and addressing these taboo subjects head on it will help people who have experienced the same to feel less alone.”

McCain published the post on Saturday along with a photo of her and husband Domenech.

“None of us are alone in this,” she continued. “I was petrified to share my story publicly but I never, ever let fear dictate my life choices. I will always take the leap, I will always roll the dice. 🎲.”

“It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” ~ Rocky Balboa 🥊🥊🥊🥊 Thank you for so many beautiful and kind responses to my New York Times @nytimes op-ed about my recent miscarriage.

My hope is by continuing to share grief and loss, and addressing these taboo subjects head on it will help people who have experienced the same to feel less alone. None of us are alone in this.

In McCain’s New York Times piece titled “Meghan McCain: What I Learned From My Miscarriage” she revealed hiding her grief due to miscarriages still being a taboo.

“I have had my share of public grief and public joy. I wish this grief — the grief of a little life begun and then lost — could remain private,” she wrote. “I am not hiding anymore. My miscarriage was a horrendous experience and I would not wish it upon anyone.”
