The miscarriage Beyonce suffered before she gave birth to her daughter Blue Ivy became public knowledge when Jay-Z rapped about the couple's heartbreak in "Glory." ("Last time, the miscarriage was so tragic. We was afraid you would disappear. But nah, baby, you magic.") Until now, however, she's never given any details about the loss they went through.
Beyonce's always been notoriously close-mouthed about her personal life, but in her HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream, she was surprisingly forthcoming about the total shock and devastation of losing the pregnancy. Sadly, her story is one that's surely achingly familiar to many women.
