Jana Kramer took to Instagram today to let her fans know she has suffered a miscarriage.

She alerted fans in a very poignant way by opening the post with 1-3. She is referring to a question doctors ask their patients, how many live children do you have and how many times have you been pregnant.

Jana said she went back and forth on whether or not to share her loss as it’s often a silent struggle for women. Most couples wait for 12 weeks before they reveal they are expecting, and when a woman suffers a miscarriage during that time, it often goes unmentioned to the outside world.

She went on to say that she doesn’t want anyone to feel alone while going through a miscarriage and wanted to let other women who are also experiencing this type of loss to know she is there for them.

It’s not clear how far along Jana was before experiencing a miscarriage. We’re so sorry to hear about your loss, Jana.

1-3 Today I am 1-3. I debated posting this for the exact reason why it's a silent struggle. I don't want I'm sorry or sympathy. I just don't want to feel alone. And I know I'm not. This unfortunately isn't my first loss. When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don't tell many, we have to suffer silently...and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it's not now. For the women out there who have miscarried in the past and need support and a place to grieve their little one lost or to those in the thick of it like me who are currently grieving and in pain, let us all be there for each other. You don't need to feel alone and maybe that's me talking to myself but if you need a place to share, I'm here for you...and all of us are (and guys too. We sometimes silence your voice because you feel bad to express how it's made u feel so let this be a safe place for you too). And because I don't have all the words to say because I'm knee deep in crying and trying to listen to God, my girlfriend @alittlebitfancy says them for me. But in her Words and her story on her loss. It's powerful and strong and those who have suffered a loss I truly feel u can heal reading her blog. I know for me it helped. Head over to her page. Her link is in the bio and also in my bio. I love you guys. #yourenotalone
