Jorgie Porter has revealed doctors could never explain why she had miscarried quadruplets as she reflected on her devastating pregnancy loss.
The star, who revealed earlier this month she lost her babies at 14 weeks, said she’s felt ‘very loved’ by her fans who have flooded her with support since she shared her struggles.
Speaking on her podcast with Sharon Carpenter, Jorgie also revealed that she kept her miscarriage a secret for weeks because she ‘couldn’t find anyone’ who had been through the same experience.

Jorgie explained that when she miscarried quadruplets she felt ill-prepared to handle the grief because she feels that miscarriage is still a taboo subject.
She continued: ‘Basically, because when you find out you’re pregnant first of all, generally in life no one really tells anyone, jalan sultan ismail kl there’s a point, a couple of months, before everyone starts to reveal to other people, and I do understand that because actually nobobdy really tells you about miscarriage.
‘It’s not taught at schools, I’ve never known about it in my high school or any upbringing I’ve had.
‘You’re finding out about it in magazines and socials.our mind goes through so many different things, so many questions, things like why did it happen, could I have prevented it?’
Jorgie added that even doctors were stunned when they learned she was expecting quadruplets since she and her boyfriend Ollie Piotrowski had fallen pregnant naturally.

The actress added that she was never given an explanation behind the loss of her babies, telling her co-host Sharon: ‘We were just never taught, we were never taught how to handle emotions, it was never in our mindsets for that to happen.
‘I think if you’re a young woman if that happens you sort of question it.You still don’t know why this happens, we still don’t have any understanding, doctors never really tell you why.
‘Four for me was the reason why, maybe they couldn’t fit in. If this could change the way we know more about it, if this is anything that brings to the table that would be incredible.’
Jorgie also revealed that she eventually discovered that a work colleague had been through a similar experience, and both sought comfort from sharing their losses.
She also praised her boyfriend Ollie for being ‘super supportive’ through her ordeal, adding: ‘When we had the miscarriage they give you the options of how it will come out.
‘And they said »because you’ve had four we don’t know what will happen.» So I said I’d like to go under general anesthetic and it was a big surgery so going along this journey Ollie made these decisions and thinking »will she be OK?Will she survive?»
‘I did feel in completely good hands, but just the stress of all the way ip and afterwards. It’s just a constant on edge stress, and then obviously things pop up and they remind you and you go »oh maybe they’d be this big now, the babies.»
