Tulip has had four miscarriages. On October 23, 2021 she opened up about her miscarriages.
“I have had four miscarriages in the last two years. Two losses in the first trimester, known as an early miscarriage, and two late losses in the second trimester.”
“My losses went from bad to worse. The first was an early pregnancy test, followed by a late and long period, that’s known as a chemical pregnancy. The second was what’s called a “blighted ovum” where a gestational sac was found, but no embryo was developing. I lost that pregnancy while on an assignment for work, reporting on maternal health in a Greek refugee camp.”
“Then there was Rivah. My tiny little boy. He was born without a heartbeat. Born sleeping as some people prefer to describe it. Rivah arrived in a perfect amniotic bubble, after a strangely beautiful labour. I’ve felt so bizarre admitting I “enjoyed” the birth. But it was the only thing we were able to do together. My husband holding my hand, and my baby being born.”
After Rivah, Tulip and her husband were advised to try again after the tests she had came back normal.
“So, I was just “unlucky” I was told. All my investigative tests came back normal and we were advised to simply try again.”
“So we did, and we got pregnant again the same year. I was terrified, depressed, and exhausted with grief. But I was fast approaching 40, and waiting didn’t feel like a good option. Rae was born four days later. The birth was traumatic. I lost a lot of blood and ended up having to go into theatre.”
“Like I had done with Rivah, I spent the night with Rae. He lay beside me, wrapped in a tiny yellow gown and placed in a special cot that’s kept cold. I had brought leaves from the myrtle tree we had planted for Rivah, and rose petals which I placed beneath him.”
