The Edge radio host reveals miscarriage trauma
Casey and her husband, fellow DJ Bryce Casey, from The Rock, decided to speak out about their loss following a second unsuccessful pregnancy.
"We went through this pretty much in silence. Sure, our families knew, a couple of people we were very close to at work knew… but that was it."
"We were silent because we almost felt embarrassed that this [had] happened to us, we felt embarrassed to tell our closest friends," Casey wrote in an emotional blog post.

The former Dancing with the Stars co-host revealed she was "happy beyond belief" when she first discovered she was pregnant.
"Every moment revolved around doing the right thing by my baby – what I ate, the exercise I did, not stressing myself… I have never felt such intense love for something I'd never met."
"It wasn't there, the baby is gone, it wasn't there".
The radio and television personality chose to speak up in order to encourage other Kiwi women going through similar experiences to do the same.
"Don't suffer in silence. Talk to people about how you're feeling, grieve for your loss and don't ever think you're less because you had [a miscarriage] because you're not."
