In a length post, Louise told her 1.2million followers, 'It might seem like everywhere you look on Instagram people are loved up, happy as can be, getting engaged, buying their first house, having intimate weddings, getting their dream job, announcing pregnancies, and other momentous occasions!'

She continued, 'But whilst all those incredible things are happening for people there is also a great deal of SHIT going on behind closed doors - A side that you might not see... I think it's SUPER important that we talk about our struggles as well as our wins.

'Earlier this year we lost our baby and it was HARD and in all honesty, I had no idea that it was possible to love someone that I'd never met quite SO MUCH. From the moment I saw the lines on the pregnancy test I started to build an emotional connection and my whole world changed, and for that to be taken away was devastating.'

Louise continued in the comments, 'This whole business of fertility can be a ROUGH and OVERWHELMING RIDE - if you know, you know, but you are NOT and WILL NEVER BE alone.⁣ Having opened up to a few friends I realised that there are quite a few others who have gone through something similar.

'I found it very comforting to talk to them about their experiences of loss and grief, and I also found it incredibly comforting to learn that there isn't really much you can do to prevent it from happening.
