Carrie Johnson has opened up about the ‘constant worry’ she feels during her current pregnancy after suffering a miscarriage earlier this year.
The Prime Minister’s 33-year-old wife, who is expecting her second child in December, shared her experience at British Baby Loss Awareness Week.
In a post on Instagram, she highlighted the work of Tommy’s Baby Charity – which provides pregnancy information and research – and admitted that she found “this pregnancy very different from my first”.
She wrote: ‘The stories of other experiences shared on her website gave us great comfort after our loss earlier this year.

‘It is also a helpful resource if you have friends or family who have experienced a baby loss and you are not sure what to say or how to best support it.
‘I found this pregnancy very different from my first. Pregnancy after loss is very wonderful but the worry is constant. Tommy showed me that this is perfectly normal. ‘
Carrie took to Instagram this summer to explain that she had a miscarriage earlier this year, which she says left her “heartbroken”.
She said she and her husband Boris are now expecting a rainbow baby – a term for a child born from a family that had previously lost another due to birth or death during childhood.
Johnson’s sixth child, Wilfred (pictured with Carrie), turned 29.
To be honest with her over 5,000 followers, she wrote: ‘Hope for our rainbow baby this Christmas. At the beginning of the year, I had a miscarriage that left me heartbroken.
‘I feel incredibly blessed to be pregnant again, but I also felt a bag of nerves. Fertility issues can be really difficult for many people, especially when on platforms like Instagram it looks like everything is just going well.
‘I have found it a real comfort to hear from people who have also experienced loss, so I hope that in a very small way sharing this can also help others.’
The announcement came just two months after her marriage to Boris Johnson when she was about two months pregnant.
