Giovanna further said that during a miscarriage, one needs people in their life to be supportive. One doesn’t have to be ashamed or think that they have done anything wrong. She appreciated Markle for speaking out about her own miscarriage and said that she would love to interview her on her podcast.

Fletcher thinks that it’s important that people are open about miscarriages. It helps so many people, because it’s such a lonely thing to go through and hearing other people express themselves can help people understand what they are going through is so important.
