SHARON Stone has revealed she has "lost nine children through miscarriage" in an honest Instagram post.
The actress, 64 – mum to adopted sons Roan, 22, Laird, 17, and Quinn, 16 – confessed she was made to feel a "sense of failure" after suffering the heart breaking losses over the years.
Commenting on People magazine's post, Sharon wrote: "We, as females don't have a forum to discuss the depth of this loss.
"I lost nine children by miscarriage.
"It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure.
"Instead of receiving the much needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need."

Sharon added: "Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology has become lax at best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in effort."

She wrote: "I found out I was going to be a parent the day after I lost my child. It was 2000, and my then husband and I had had a series of devastating late-term miscarriages.
"On our final attempt to have a baby naturally, I had to go through painful surgery – and 36 hours of labour – to deliver a stillborn.
