“I dropped on my knees in grief and pleading.”
Tammin Sursok reflected on her difficult birth experience as she celebrated her daughter Lennon’s fourth birthday.
The Australian star openly discussed the emotional events leading up to the birth, when she thought she might be having another miscarriage.
Subchorionic bleeding, or bleeding between the membranes enclosing the embryo in the uterus, was what Sursok was actually dealing with.
And Lennon arrived on January 17, 2019, in good health.
“I don’t know whether anyone is aware of this, but I started bleeding 12 weeks into my pregnancy with Lennon. A lot,” Sursok said at the opening of his Wednesday post.
“It was 4 a.m., and there had been numerous miscarriages.
“I sank to my knees in despair and misery, believing that this pregnancy was yet another one that had been lost.
“We arrived at the hospital quickly. I’ll never forget the technician’s expression when they connected me to the monitors.
It was a feeling of relief.
The actress was informed that her kid was “not going anywhere, for now” and had a “really strong heartbeat.”
Sursok added, “I experienced something called a subchorionic bleed and I bled during much of my pregnancy.
The actress claimed she “didn’t truly connect to Lennon because I was too terrified to love something so deeply, something that might not ever come to be” because of prior miscarriages.
Lennon was delivered by c-section on January 17, 2019.
Sursok’s second child with her husband Sean McEwen is named Lennon. Phoenix, their elder child, is nine years old.
I cried when I first saw her face, according to Sursok.
She was present. She was genuine. She was protected,” the mother continued.
“I felt love in a way that was the strongest I’ve ever felt.
“Every stress and suffering brought on by the unknown washed away. We were eventually all still alive.
She stated, “Today is her fourth birthday and she has only given us happiness, affection, and love.”
She has helped me in so many ways, including teaching me to trust God’s timing.
“Lennon We adore you more than you can possibly imagine, bleu. We appreciate your saving us.
The actress tweeted many images of Lennon taken over the course of his four years along with the caption.
As a result of the outpouring of sympathy for Sursok on social media, other readers shared their own tragedies.
“I appreciate how open and honest you have always been. One supporter wrote, “I know you’ve gone through some terrible experiences and you’re so strong and inspirational.
“Lennon is a credit to you, and I’m delighted she was able to help with the healing process. Greetings on your adorable little Lennon’s birthday.
“I suffered two subchorionic haemorrhages with my daughter and she turns one next Tuesday,” a different mother remarked.
“I recall crying a lot, praying a lot, and loving every second of being pregnant with her. I used a c-section to birth her as well. I appreciate you sharing this!
“@tamminsursok, I’m very sorry you experienced those miscarriages. I appreciate you being so honest. Discussion is required,” stated a third.
It’s not the first time the celebrity has spoken out about her miscarriages and pregnancy with Lennon.
Sursok described her first pregnancy to The Morning Show as “Phoenix was such an easy pregnancy, and I became pregnant very, really quick – it was quite uncomplicated.”
When we made the decision to have a second child, I became pregnant quite quickly again; unfortunately, we lost that baby in the hospital.
It was rather shocking because I was quite far along in my pregnancy. You never think it will happen to you when things like that happen, she added.
But despite how often they are, we rarely discuss them.
Then, right before Lennon, I experienced another loss, making it two in a row.
Women tend to keep their experiences to themselves.
We are feeling really alone and alone.
