Ahead of the release of her memoir, “Becoming,” the former first lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama had an interview with “Good Morning America,” where she shared excerpts from the book.
In Michelle’s conversation with GMA, she said that she was honest about her miscarriage and her journey to motherhood in her book to help other women.
“I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work,” she said.
After suffering a miscarriage about 20 years ago, Michelle said she felt lost and alone.
“I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken. That’s one of the reasons why I think it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen and that the biological clock is real.”
Michelle said she was at ages 34 and 35 when it hit her that the biological clock is real and egg production is limited. So, she and her husband had to do the IVF procedure to conceive their daughters.
“I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF,” she said.
“Becoming” reportedly reveals a raw account of Michelle’s life as she shared deeply personal moments and insights that shaped her life. From her childhood, to her college years, to her deep love affair with her husband.
