A balmy Bank Holiday weekend and six adults and two small children sit down to an al fresco dinner.
At the bottom of our garden, under the magnolia tree, a table groans with salads and stacks of bread. The prosecco is popped. My husband Dan, sporting an apron emblazoned with Barbecue King, brings over the burgers. It is perfect. There is just one small, off-kilter detail. I am perched on a tatty beach towel, just in case I bleed over the new patio furniture.
Because, you see, as well as hosting a Bank Holiday barbecue, I happen to be in the middle of a miscarriage. We smile, we clink glasses, we make small talk about the sausages. And all the while, Dan and I know we are losing our baby. The tiny new life we hoped for is ebbing away and there is nothing we can do about it.
It is the second time in five months this has happened to us.
Jennie Agg (pictured) who has had four miscarriages in two years, explored why women instinctively continue with their daily tasks while miscarrying
The miscarriage had been diagnosed that morning. I was eight weeks pregnant and had started spotting — though only lightly. But a quick ultrasound scan ‘just to make sure’ came up still and black and so we were sent home to let nature take its course. Dan and I stepped out of the maternity unit into dazzling spring sunshine but, for us, the world felt very grey.
So why were we playing at dinner parties that same evening, as if nothing had happened?
I know how weird it must seem. Macabre, even. But the reality is, this kind of thing happens a lot more than you might think.
This week, highlighting the absence of maternity rights for members of Parliament, Labour MP Stella Creasy described how she felt she had no choice but to carry on working through two miscarriages.
