Elise Schaap would rather have kept miscarriage to herself

At the beginning of the second trimester, a routine ultrasound shows that her child’s heart is no longer beating. “I had to cancel a theater tour and felt strangely more or less obliged to say something about it, to give it openness,” Elise now tells about her candor. “I did that in an interview with a magazine, I thought that was done, but I was immediately called by all talk programs if I wanted to talk about it.”

She preferred not to, but her story was picked up big. “I hit myself a few times then: why did I share this? It was also so fresh,” she looks back. “But I also received a lot of sweet messages and I also liked how open you were about your feelings: it is a kind of comfort for many people.”

Earlier she even called it one wake-up call: “I’m not going to let it get that far anymore. I’m not going to run past myself (…) in my case my family really comes first,” she said in JAN.

You can read the entire interview in the LINDA. June issue coming out Wednesday.
