In August 2023, the Bachelor Nation star took to Instagram to share devastating news of the miscarriage of her fourth child, a son named Beau. What made her situation even more painful was that she was experiencing a “missed miscarriage,” meaning that her body had not yet recognized the pregnancy loss and was still carrying the baby.

Jade Roper bravely shared her emotional journey on social media, detailing the heartbreak and physical challenges she was facing. She described feeling “completely broken” and “forever changed” by the experience.

The one-year mark since her miscarriage is rapidly approaching. The BIP alum continues sharing a raw and emotional look at her experience with pregnancy loss. One of her social media followers sought advice this week about how to cope with a miscarriage.

Jade replied that she let herself feel everything, including “the shock, the numbness, the pain that felt like an abyss inside myself. The anger and the denial.” She added that she felt “sorrowful gratitude” that she was pregnant with her son, even if it was for only a short time.

The mom-of-three also suggested online support groups and finding ways to honor the baby. For Jade, that meant buying a cake on what would have been Beau’s due date.

She revealed that she has more “good days” now than she did when the miscarriage first happened. However, she shared that there are still days when she cries uncontrollably over the devastating loss of her son. Jade Roper recently gave a subtle clue that she isn’t going to try to expand her family with another child.
