Newsreader reveals how she had miscarriage live on air

A journalist has revealed how she lost her baby live on-air and then finished her segment. 

Newsreader Miriama Kamo, who works for TVNZ in New Zealand, described the heart-breaking incident in an online video series called Misconceptions, which focuses on miscarriages.

The 46-year-old said: ‘I lost a pregnancy when I was reading the news.

‘I remember the cameras were all playing up that night – and I was like ”I can’t believe this camera has gone, now that’s one gone down, I’m losing my baby, I’ve got one camera left – I’ve got to get to the end of this bulletin and then deal with this”.’

Kamo, who has endometriosis, previously revealed she had suffered six miscarriages.

She has a nine-year-old daughter called Te Rerehua Kamo Dreaver.

GP Cathy Stephenson, who appeared on the Misconceptions series, said many couples were not told how to get support after they suffered a miscarriage. 

She added: ‘In most parts of New Zealand your pregnancy is managed by a midwife, not by your GP, but a lot of people can’t get in to a midwife until they are 12 weeks, so you may feel like – I don’t really know where to go.’  

Kamo hosts two current affairs programmes for TVNZ, including one dedicated to Māori content.

Digital Alchemist produced ten-part series Misconceptions and it was funded by NZ On Air.
