Ex-Dynasty actress Stephanie Beacham reveals miscarriage trauma: 'Such pain that I've never dealt with it'
EMOTIONAL STEPHANIE BEACHAM REVEALS TRAUMA OF MISCARRIAGE
Former Dynasty actress Stephanie was left 'trembling' as she spoke about her harrowing miscarriage and terrible experience in hospital afterwards.
Coleen Nolan, Andrea McLean, Nadia Sawalha and Jane Moore had shared their own experiences of miscarriage on the show when they were joined by Stephanie.
'It was horrible for everybody,' Stephanie said. 'Unfortunately, I was bashed in a rehearsal, and that's what brought on the miscarriage. They are very emotional things.'
Stephanie was four months pregnant when she lost the baby. 'By that time you've almost decided the school. Between three and four months your filling up, you're making plans,' she said.
After the accident, Stephanie, mum to two daughters Phoebe and Chloe with ex-husband John McEnery, went to hospital but was left heartbroken by her treatment.
'So when I'd had the procedure, because I had a miscarriage and I was in hospital, and I said, "I want to know the sex". It was a little boy. I said, "May I see him?" And the nurse that was passing said, "No they're thrown in the incinerator".'
When Nadia asked how she dealt with the miscarriage and shocking treatment, Stephanie said, 'Such pain, Nadia, that I've never dealt with it. I watched the smoke as I left the hospital. Isn't that mad?'
'I do hope there is more care, I'm feeling trembly saying it now,' Stephanie added. 'But I hope there's more care taken. More acknowledgement, as far as the parents are concerned, that was a little boy.'
'You have to put that in the past and then go on. I'm laughing simply because how horrid is that?'
