The 35-year-old health and wellness expert who has four children with actor husband Alec Baldwin, 61, revealed that that there was "no heartbeat" when she went for a scan during her fifth pregnancy. 

She says that speaking so openly about the loss on Instagram helped her feel less ashamed about the experience due to all the support from other women she received.

"It's much more about the issue and less about me because once I opened up, so many people came to me and said they experienced the same thing. There's so much shame surrounding it. So I just wanted to be open. And it wasn't so scary. A lot of time you find out when you open up it's not scary."

"Creating a positive from a negative, this little flicker of life left it's mark. This is an issue that so many suffer with in silence... because those are the rules we follow. I came forward to share and create a spark... please help me turn this spark into a lasting flame. I want to share this because I feel like this little soul was mighty in the wave it provoked."
