The Veronicas Singer Lisa Origliasso Opens Up About Her Ectopic Pregnancy and Miscarriage

The Veronicas Singer Lisa Origliasso Opens Up About Her Ectopic Pregnancy and Miscarriage

 

Lisa Origliasso, one half of The Veronicas, recently opened up about her heartbreaking experience with an ectopic pregnancy which led to a miscarriage.

An ectopic pregnancy is a potentially life threatening condition where a fertilised egg implants outside of the uterus, usually in the fallopian tubes.

The Brisbane based singer opened up about the loss in a series of Instagram posts, where she spoke of how her dreams “came true” after discovering she was expecting her first child with husband Logan Huffman.

“A month ago all of our dreams seemed to have come true,” the 35-year-old began. “We’d found out I had fallen pregnant. We cried, laughed and held on to each other in pure excitement that we were going to start a great journey. As a couple, we always had an understanding to a certain extent of the miracle of life, how it is strong and fragile all at once.”

“But now we truly appreciate that from our own experience. Sometimes pain can bring about the greatest growth.”

Lisa went on to say that she took several pregnancy tests just to be sure before surprising her husband with the happy news. However, just two weeks after the couple celebrated, her world turned upside down when she began to experience excessive bleeding. At the time, her doctor thought she was suffering a miscarriage however further tests proved it was something more.

“My heart sank and I knew something was wrong,” Lisa recalled.

“It was in fact, an ectopic pregnancy. And I needed urgent medical attention to prevent it from becoming critical. I was immediately admitted to hospital. Sometimes in life no matter which way we step, no matter what choice we make, we’re destined to hurt. I was told I was just one of the ‘really unlucky ones’ but I can not see that as truth,” she added.

“It’s been some of the darkest times of our lives yes, but it’s also been some of the happiest.”

The singer says that although the experience was devastating she knows she will one day become a mother.

“Inevitably, I know one day we will have a family. But it just wouldn’t feel right to share the good news in the future, without paying respect, love and bringing awareness to the heartbreaking journey so many women and couples face everyday,” she concluded.

Lisa and Logan married in November 2018 on the Sunshine Coast with her twin sister Jess acting as one of her bridesmaids.
