Gabrielle Union is an actress that is married to NBA basketball player Dwayne Wade. Gabrielle has written a memoir called We’re Going to Need More Wine. In an excerpt released online, Gabrielle talks about her struggles with infertility. She never wanted kids until she fell in love with her husband and his two boys and nephew. She then began to explore IVF and has had 8 or 9 miscarriages. Gabrielle goes on to share that her body has been a prisoner to the trials of trying to get and stay pregnant. Over the last 3 years, Gabrielle has either been getting ready to start IVF, in the middle of a cycle or just ending one. All of the hormones have left her constantly bloated, but not defeated. Despite all of the struggles Gabrielle and Dwayne are determined as ever to make a baby.
Despite miscarriage still being a topic that a lot of women don’t openly discuss, Gabrielle is not the only celebrity that has opened up to the public about her struggles with infertility and pregnancy loss.
