"It takes away the joy and excitement when and if you choose (and are able) to get pregnant again. It's replaced by anxiety, stress and more fear than I ever could have imagined.

"Nick and I lost two babies in 2021. Both losses were at the end of the first trimester and completely heartbreaking."

Jesscia went on to explain her heartbreak at being pregnant and then losing the baby at the same time as a pregnancy storyline for her character, Nancy.
