Meghan McCain is doing some reflecting before heading into 2020, and addressing the many “curveballs” she’s faced within the last few years — namely, the difficult loss that she dealt with when she miscarried.

The View co-host took to Twitter to open up about the struggles that she’s been through when it comes to motherhood, and to acknowledge the millions of others who have been through the same thing. She also shared her wish that the new year brings better fortune to these hopeful moms.

“I, like so many other millions of women have had my struggles with motherhood,” she tweeted. “Given the nature of my life and job this is something that I have been open with.”

McCain first came forward about the miscarriage that she suffered in a July op-ed for the New York Times, calling it a “horrendous experience.” “I look back at those pictures now, and I see a woman hiding her shock and sorrow. I am posed for the camera, looking stern and strong, representing my fellow conservative women across the country,” the then-34-year-old wrote. “But inside, I am dying. Inside, my baby is dying.”

She ended the powerful piece by noting how “distressingly common” miscarriage is, and extending support to others experiencing the same thing. “I have love for all the women who, like me, were briefly in the sisterhood of motherhood, hoping, praying and nursing joy within us, until the day the joy was over.”

In the wake of Thursday’s tweet, many women came forward on Twitter to share their own experiences.

In addition to speaking out, McCain called for more kindness when it comes to discussing “these issues.”

“Not everyone’s story is a perfect and beautiful straight line to motherhood,” she wrote.
