Brook's miscarriage hell offers hope to other women

British actress/model Kelly Brook has become a shoulder to cry on for women who have suffered miscarriages after she told of her baby heartache last year (11).

The Piranha 3D star was due to become a first-time mother with her boyfriend, retired rugby ace Thom Evans, but Brook announced in May (11) she had miscarried the child five months into her pregnancy.


Brook's openness prompted an outpouring of well wishes and now she's become a support for others who have lost their unborn babies.


She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "I found that women approached me and wanted to talk about things that they'd been through themselves. I think they probably take comfort in knowing that even though you seem to have a very blessed life, bad things happen to you, and it's not your fault.


"It happens to lots of people, and it's not such a taboo. It's just one of those things, and probably the only positive thing to come out of something like that is that you can talk to people about it."
