‘I really don’t even know how to say this… I always want this space to be uplifting with good positive energy but lately it doesn’t feel authentic to only share the good and not the trials, as I know so many of us go through hard times quietly,’ the New Zealand-born mum said.

‘Max and I are having another miscarriage. Last week I went in for an ultrasound, almost nine weeks along and no heartbeat, again. 

‘This would be our fourth time now but the first time sharing about it.’

Mrs Hannemann explained how she always felt uncomfortable to open up about pregnancy loss because it ‘never felt like the right time’ but she wants to be more transparent now about growing her family.

‘I know I’m not alone in this. I am so sorry to all who have to go through this to,’ she said.

‘I truly want anyone else going through the same to feel seen and acknowledged and feel SO loved, important and valued with so much purpose in life.

‘It’s not easy, it really sucks! Especially when we still don’t have answers. But we are getting through it and am grateful to know it’s in the Lord’s hands, and I find comfort and peace in that. I know rainbows come after the rain.’
