Christina Perri Discusses Blood Clotting Diagnoses Following Pregnancy Loss
After losing two pregnancies that may have been caused by a simple blood-clotting problem, Christina Perri is on a mission to help others escape the agonizing grief she experienced. What is her goal? to promote understanding of a blood test that can identify that specific illness.
The 35-year-Christina Perri revealed in a People interview that she may have received the diagnosis for the pregnancy loss months after losing Rosie, who was “born mute.” The fact that the pregnancy loss in November 2020 occurred 10 months after she had a miscarriage just makes the agony worse.
When Rosie passed away, she says there was “so much wrath, pain, and sadness.” There were other times when I was unable to see my future self.
Dr. Mary Kerr, Perri’s OB-GYN, told the outlet that a blood thinner can be used to prevent the blood condition. The singer, who announced she was having a girl in May, now takes Lovenox daily injections, but initially, digesting the diagnosis was heartbreaking.
According to Perri, who conducted research on the subject and questioned why a test to identify the blood disease isn’t provided to all pregnant women, “Once I comprehended what she had told me, I was sick to my stomach for weeks.”
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists only suggests the blood test following two consecutive early pregnancy losses, it turns out. Perri is working to change that by requesting that the association of doctors who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology modify its operating procedures so that all women can get the test.
Because the doctors followed protocol, Perri tells People, “I can’t be furious at the doctors.” “However, ACOG has the authority to make that test available to all pregnant women as part of a parental screening. For me, the past is not the topic at hand. It’s about rescuing infants.”
Perri is determined to “transform something beautiful” out of her misfortune.
