Mitchelle Obama is the wife of the first black president of America, Barrack Obama who handed over power to the current President, Donald Trump.
The former first lady who was rumored to be a trans-gender, has revealed that she suffered a miscarriage 20 years ago and she later underwent IVF to conceive her daughters.
This was made known in an interview on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ were she talked extensively about her journey to motherhood.
“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.” Mrs. Obama, 54, said she and Barack Obama underwent fertilization treatments to conceive daughters Sasha and Malia, now 17 and 20. “I realized that as I was 34 and 35, we had to do IVF,” she said in excerpts from an ABC special set to air on Sunday.
“I felt lost and alone and 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 the biological clock is real because egg production is limited and I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF, . 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 and how they don’t work.”
