‘My first and last bump picture’: On Thursday, Teresa Palmer shared an Instagram post remembering her miscarriage in 2015. Dressed in a bra and shorts while showing off her small bump, she smiled in this photo taken just a day before learning her child wouldn’t survive

Dressed in a black bra and matching shorts, she smiled in the photo while showing off her small bump.

She wrote in the caption: ‘This was my first and last “bump” picture when I was pregnant with my second baby in 2015.

‘The following day we found out that this baby would never grow to be the little person I had dreamed them up to be.’

Teresa added: ‘Today is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. To all those lost babies and the ones mourning them, I am thinking of you.⁣ 

She also paid tribute to her grandmother, who was seen in a photo on the cabinet beside her, who’d also lost her baby in the 1950s.

‘Honouring her today and so many other angels,’ she wrote.

This is not the first time Teresa has discussed her heartbreaking miscarriage.

In 2018, she shared a bittersweet photo to Instagram that was taken just moments before she learned she was losing her baby.

The image showed her holding her son Bodhi, now six, alongside her husband, Mark Webber, 40, as they awaited the results of an ultrasound. 

She captioned the photo: ‘August 13, 2015. Seven weeks pregnant and waiting for the doctor to come in to see the heartbeat of our second baby.

‘A few minutes later she walked in, we were giddy with excitement, but we never got to see our baby’s heartbeat, instead we heard the words, “I’m so sorry this baby doesn’t look viable.”‘

Teresa then learned she had a molar pregnancy, which occurs when the cells that normally form placenta develop into normal cells instead and can be ‘potentially cancerous.

‘I needed surgery immediately. I was whisked away into the operating theatre to have a D&C [dilation and curettage]. It was the first time I’d ever been in hospital,’ she explained.
