Wife of Melbourne Demons veteran Nathan Jones reveals third consecutive miscarriage in heartbreaking post

The wife of Melbourne veteran Nathan Jones has bravely revealed she’s suffered three consecutive miscarriages, aiming to raise awareness for International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

Jerri Jones took to Instagram in an emotional post to share her most recent heart-breaking loss.

“Although I’m usually a very private person, it seems fitting, on all days to share that this week I experienced my 3rd consecutive miscarriage and had a d&c today,” she wrote to her 22,000 followers.

“Pregnancy loss can be very lonely and I hope by sharing part of our story this may help even one person feel less alone in theirs.

“I know that hearing other women share their experiences has helped me immensely.”

The mother-of-two expressed her gratitude for having healthy children despite the family’s tragic losses.

“I’m so grateful for our two beautiful, healthy children and feel SO deeply for those who have not been so lucky,” she continued.

“Sending love to anyone that needs it today.”

High profile partners led the floods of well wishes and messages of support, including former West Coast captain Chris Judd’s wife Bec.

“Been thinking of you so much,” the Perth-bred WAG wrote.

“So many will benefit from your shared story. You are amazing. Big love to you and Nath.”

“Thinking of you,” Jonathon Brown’s wife Kylie added.

Former Adelaide captain Taylor Walker and his wife, who also suffered a miscarriage, shared love heart emojis on the post.

Current Crows captain Rory Sloane and wife Belinda have led the conversation on stillborn losses after their son Leo was born ‘still but perfect’ in August 2018.

“Every day we continue to remember our beautiful Leo, our love for him only grows 💙🦁,” the Channel 7 presenter shared.

“Today is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. ✨

“Please join us along with others all around the globe by lighting a candle at 7pm in loving memory of all of the bubs gone far too soon”
