In addition to the global 2020 madness, Chrissy and her family have been grieving the loss of their baby Jack. After 20 weeks of pregnancy, she shared her devastation on social media. “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.”
“Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go in the morning,” she penned in a heartbreaking essay for Medium. “I cried a little at first, then went into full blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness.”
“Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again,” she candidly continued. Chrissy was diagnosed with partial placenta abruption and underwent several blood transfusions while in the hospital.
