Lerato Kganyago Opens Up About Heartbreaking Miscarriage: A Tale of Strength and Resilience

South African media personality and businessperson Lerato Kganyago recently shared a heartfelt message on Instagram, revealing that she had suffered her fifth miscarriage. This painful experience occurred on February 12, just two days before Valentine’s Day.

In her Instagram post, Lerato expressed her sorrow and gratitude for the support of her colleagues, family, and friends. She shared a scan from January 26, 2024, and a poignant message, saying, “Pardon my silence. This was the most happiest but became a painful part of this month. Thank you to my supportive colleagues and bosses, my family and friends. I’m strong and will never give up.”

Lerato’s journey with infertility has been long and arduous. In 2017, she revealed on social media that she could not have children, a fact she shared reluctantly after being asked about motherhood on Mother’s Day. In an interview with True Love Magazine, she spoke about suffering from fibroids and the complications it posed for her fertility.

The Emotional Toll of Miscarriage

Specialist wellness counselor Lauriahne Eksteen, who has also experienced multiple miscarriages, commented on the immense emotional toll such experiences take on women. She emphasized the importance of support for both women and men during such challenging times, highlighting that both partners need compassion and understanding.

“Most of the time, women lose confidence after suffering a miscarriage. Society often expects women to get over it and be strong, but the hurt is real, and the loss remains tremendous,” Eksteen said.

A Community of Support

Lerato’s candid revelation elicited a flood of support from fans and followers. Many shared messages of solidarity, expressing hope and encouragement for her future. Tweets poured in, offering hugs and positive affirmations, underscoring the collective empathy and shared pain within the community.
