Reporter Lisa Ling returned to her former talk show, "The View," to open up about a miscarriage she suffered six months ago.
According to People, it is on Friday's episode of the show that Ling talks about the experience, saying she felt like "a failure."
"We actually (hadn't) been trying that long," Ling revealed. "I don't know that I took it as seriously as I should have because it happened so fast. But then when I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like bam, like a knife through the heart."
Ling says she was seven weeks along when she found out the devastating news and is sharing her story to encourage other women to talk about their experiences.
Ling, 37, is married to oncologist Paul Song. She has started a new website for women, www.secretsocietyofwomen.com.
