Rosanna Davison reveals she suffered her 15th miscarriage just a month before falling pregnant with twins

The now mother-of-three was on The Late Late Show last night speaking about the release of her book When Dreams Come True: The Heartbreak and Hope on My Journey to Motherhood.

Rosanna has three children, her first child Sophia born via surrogate in 2019 and twin boys Oscar and Hugo who were born last year.

While on the show Rosanna spoke about suffering a 15th miscarriage last year, right before falling pregnant with her identical twin boys.

The former Miss World has previously opened up about 14 miscarriages, but only spoke on the most recent one on last night’s show.

After losing the baby at 10 weeks Rosanna said that she was “stunned” to have gotten that far along, having suffered her previous miscarriages at or before six and a half weeks.

Just four weeks later the model fell pregnant again, this time with twins, although she didn’t discover she was pregnant until she was about six-weeks along.

“I was just shocked, I mean to go from the girl who couldn’t have a baby, who needed to rely on a surrogate, to being pregnant with twins… it was just the most extraordinary feeling.

“But it took me a long time to really believe that it would last, I didn’t believe that it would,” she said.

Thankfully she welcomed two healthy boys in 2020.

Rosanna said she wrote the book to open the conversation about infertility and spread awareness that it happens to a lot of people.

The book launched yesterday and Rosanna took to Instagram to share her excitement, “Happy Friday to you and happy publication day to us @gillbooks!

“If you’re near a telly tonight, I’ll be on @latelaterte speaking about motherhood, miscarriage, family life with three under two and, for the first time, the extraordinary set of circumstances that led to Hugo and Oscar coming into the world.”

Speaking about writing the book she said;

“My aim in writing this book about our struggles with fertility, from being told I wouldn’t be able to carry my own baby, to the long & challenging surrogacy journey we undertook to have Sophia, followed by the joy of welcoming naturally conceived identical twins less than a year later, is to help normalise the conversation about infertility & pregnancy loss & to examine the stigma & silence that can still surround it.”

“I feel that sharing my story about the frustration & loneliness we experienced will help to contribute to the growing awareness of miscarriage, an experience sadly shared by so many.”

Continuing she said; “I also write about their birth, my C-section recovery, breastfeeding, maternal mental health, life as a working mum & how we’ve adapted to the chaos at home with 3 under 2!”

Rosanna’s book is out now!
