‘I’ll never forget, my darling girl’: Madeleine West reveals her devastating miscarriage on the 11-year anniversary of her heartbreaking loss

Neighbours actress Madeleine West has revealed she suffered a tragic miscarriage 11 years ago.

Posting to Instagram on Thursday, the mother of six opened up about her devastating loss in a tribute to her baby.

She uploaded an ultrasound scan and also shared a tribute she’d previously written for all women who have suffered the same loss.

‘I didn’t forget, my darling girl!…I never ever will,’ Madeleine captioned the post. 

‘Today that little bundle of hope would have turned 11… had she not been called on to greater things before we had the chance to meet her.’

Madeleine also posted several text slides in which she paid tribute to ‘a friend’ who lost her baby, but was presumably referring to herself.

Despite women being encouraged to wait until the end of the first trimester to share their pregnancy news, Madeleine revealed that her ‘friend’ was already ‘planning names’ and ‘plotting nursery layouts’.

But those dreams ended in heartbreak. 

‘My friend bequeathed an entire lifetime of hopes and dreams to that little heartbeat on an ultrasound screen… until it stopped,’ she wrote.

Madeleine went on to remind women that their miscarried baby will never be forgotten.

She wrote: ‘That little one will always be a part of you both, a pure and perfect bud on your family tree that never had a chance to blossom, but worthy of its place on the branch.’
