Maya Vander, selling Sunset agent, suffered a stillbirth in December at 38 weeks. She spoke out about her grief to Tan France during Season five Reunion.
Maya Vander, selling star and actress of Selling Sunset, has bravely spoken out about the loss of her third child during Season Five’s Reunion.
The 40-year old real estate agent lost her third child at 38 weeks in December 2013.
Maya took to Instagram to post a picture of her baby’s clothes with caption: “Yesterday was the hardest day of my life. I had a still birth at 38 weeks. I always heard of it but never imagined I’ll be part of the statistics.
“Instead of delivering a baby, I get to go home with a memory box… I do not wish this on anyone. I was expecting a weekly checkup, but it turned into something that would be terrifying.
“Given I share my pregnancies in the show I knew I’ll have to post about this and avoid the “ when is your due date “ question. You will always be in our heart baby Mason,”She added.
Tan France, the host of Selling Sunset: The Reunion asked Maya how she was doing.
“Much better, it’s been four and a half months and Mary mentioned earlier that time helps, and I think time does help,”She told him.
“You know, life happens. We film reality, we don’t know how things will happen. I was 38 weeks and apparently it was a freak accident.
“The autopsy report was received about a month before. It was an accident with the cord that mixed with some ingested placenta.”
Maya continued: “But I am doing better. I have my husband who is amazing. My kids are wonderful and keep me going.
“I have work and I’m busy so I don’t have time to sit and cry all day long. I have my moments, we all do, and that’s part of grief.
“That void is still there. I believe part of my healing is having a baby again. I truly hope that I will.” she added as Tan described her as a “superwoman”.
