 Miscarriage Increased Empathy for Other Women, Says Kelly Brook
After suffering through an ordeal of miscarriage last year, Kelly Brook believes that she has become a shoulder to cry on for women who have suffered miscarriages.
The 32-year-old actress was due to become a first-time mother with her boyfriend, retired rugby ace Thom Evans, but she announced in May that 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.

"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," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Glamour magazine.

"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," she added.
