Several women have suffered from the grief and trauma of having a miscarriage, but it’s rarely discussed in the public arena. That’s why folks are applauding Beyoncé for sharing the story of her own miscarriage and how it impacted her in her upcoming HBO documentary, “Life Is But A Dream.”

The superstar discusses her miscarriage as well as rumors that she faked her pregnancy and used a surrogate. Via USA Today, who received an advance copy of the documentary:

She shares footage of her trip to Paris with her nephew. She talks about wanting to “make love” to her husband. She explains why she decided to share her pregnancy news so visibly at the MTV awards.

Most notably: She opens up about her miscarriage two years ago, saying that one week she heard a heartbeat – and the next, nothing. And she talks about how devastating the loss was to her and how she retreated to the studio to deal with it.
