Lisa Ling: I felt like a failure after miscarriage

- Associated Press - Wednesday, December 8, 2010

NEW YORK (AP) - Journalist Lisa Ling says she felt like a "complete failure" after suffering a miscarriage six months ago.

Ling, who appeared on "The View" from 1999 to 2002, came back to the show Tuesday to talk about her experience. Her taped appearance will air Friday.

Ling says that after she'd been pregnant for nine weeks, she was told her baby had no heartbeat. She says she "felt more like a failure than I'd felt in a very long time." Ling, who is 37, says she fears it might happen again, leaving her "devastated." Ling is married to oncologist Paul Song.

She says she realized that many women she knew had miscarriages but rarely talked about it. She and a business partner have started a website that encourages women to anonymously share their experiences.
