Television and radio presenter Sharyn Casey has poured her heart out in an emotional blog post admitting she "still cries" at work after suffering two miscarriages in 12 months.
The former Dancing With the Stars host and her DJ husband Bryce Casey started trying for children last year, but the road to happiness has been fought with difficulty.
There was elation at discovering her first pregnancy followed by utter disbelief at losing the baby, after a six week scan failed to show its heartbeat.
News of their second pregnancy came with a wave of excitement and relief, but their world came crashing down once more with a call from the doctor.
"She told me I would again lose our baby, she then went on to tell me that 'after a third one, we can refer you to a fertility doctor' which enraged me," she wrote.
Their experience and the silence which followed, prompted Sharyn to speak out in a very public forum with the detailed account appearing on Blog with a Witty Name.
As someone in the public eye she felt it was important to blog about "real stuff" and chose the "taboo" subject of miscarriage to launch her new site.
"Miscarriages have this weird stigma of feeling like you failed and you feel embarrassed, like you're the only one that it's happened too and ya know what you aren't," she wrote.
"It's really common, a lot of women miscarry, it's horrible but it also shows that you're not a loser."
She shared the post on her Twitter account saying she hoped it would help someone.
Husband Bryce backed up her efforts, tweeting "bloody great work from my gutsy best mate."
