Tahyna Tozzi and her Studio 10-star husband Tristan MacManus, are proud parents to daughter Echo Isolde, four, and son Oisín Lír, one, but along the way, they also suffered three miscarriages in four years.
The couple address their devastating losses in Tahyna’s debut documentary MuM (Misunderstandings of Miscarriage), released on Stan this month, in a bid to help normalise miscarriage and unpack the stigma.
Tahyna, 34, told Daily Mail Australia this week, that upon reflection, she wished she ‘acknowledged’ Tristan’s ‘pain and grief more’.
‘He was my rock and was incredibly supportive. Looking back, I wish I acknowledged his pain and grief more,’ she said of Tristan, 38. ‘Tristan also experienced a loss and that is one of the themes I wanted to showcase in MuM, that it (miscarriage) can affect partners and family members and we should acknowledge their process.’
MuM includes footage captured of Tahyna’s pregnancy losses from her second miscarriage onwards, and other personal stories from friends including actresses Claire Holt and Teresa Palmer, and adoption advocate Deborra-Lee Furness.
Tahyna hopes the documentary will normalize miscarriage and unpack the stigma.
