Jayne, who welcomed her first son Joey via IVF in February 2020, told Stellar magazine in September 2020 that she’d been through the ‘agonising’ pain of suffering multiple miscarriages.

‘[Trent and I] experienced pregnancy loss; we experienced it more than once and it’s agonising. We ended up going the IVF route, and it can be very lonely,’ she revealed.

That month, she also penned an open letter for Essential Baby and addressed those who have also endured fertility battles – reminding women that they are ‘brave and not alone’.

‘It’s something that can be difficult to talk about, and as a result, difficult for anyone who hasn’t experienced it to understand what it must be like,’ the journalist wrote.

‘For many, it’s not the same thing as losing a living breathing child you have come to know and love – but it’s losing everything you hoped and imagined that child to be.’  

She added that while many women do share their heartbreaking experiences with others, those who don’t are equally as brave.
