Amanda Holden ‘devastated’ by loss of unborn baby |

My heart goes out to Amanda Holden and her family.  I know how devastating it is to lose a baby, but I just cannot imagine how utterly heartbreaking it must be to lose a baby so late in pregnancy.  By 7 months you think you’re out of the danger zone and can actually start to relax and believe that everything will be ok.


The Britain’s Got Talent judge was seven months pregnant, but noticed last week that the baby had stopped moving.

She went to West Middlesex Hospital in London on Tuesday, but despite the best efforts of doctors, her baby was stillborn.

A spokesman for Amanda and Chris said: ‘They are utterly devastated. Amanda had been closely monitored throughout her pregnancy and it is not yet known what went wrong.’

The couple, who have a five-year-old daughter Lexi, only announced Amanda was expecting another child last month.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks so much for bringing attention to the topic of miscarriage. After my own experiences I needed to believe that the world was different in a positive way because of the losses. I was driven to create something that would not have existed had I not miscarried. A filmmaker by trade, what resulted is a ten-minute short film The House I Keep, about a woman who struggles to come to terms with the loss of her baby through miscarriage. A relentless war between her internal and external life has plagued her recovery until she stumbles upon a curious symbol of hope that helps lead her back to peace.

    After screenings of The House I Keep, I have been overwhelmed by the heartbreaking stories of miscarriage that women have felt compelled to share. These gatherings became transformative. Discussing the film has provided an ‘appropriate’ place to share their own stories. Their silence was broken and isolation bridged. My mission for the film is to improve the mental health of women and their families mourning miscarriage by providing an identifiable voice through the film. The film is a platform for discussion and understanding, and hence, an impetus for healing.

    The House I Keep is premiering at the 2011 Tallahassee Film Festival in April, we are doing everything we can to raise awareness about the topic of miscarriage and our film. Please visit our website at for more detailed information about the film.

    Very best,
    Jhene Erwin
