Sports Personality Sara Walsh Goes From Difficult Miscarriages To Having Healthy Twins

Sara Walsh was the host of the Mother's Day edition of ESPN's SportsCenter for several years. However, doing so was painful for a woman who had suffered an on-air miscarriage.

The sports reporter and ex-ESPN anchor recently discussed her struggle with IVF and pregnancy loss on social media: “For as long as I can remember I hosted SportsCenter on Mother's Day, and the last couple years doing that have been personally brutal. An hours-long reminder of everything that had gone wrong.”

She noted in her post that her troubles began when she went to Alabama to host a live show: “I arrived in Tuscaloosa almost three months pregnant. I wouldn't return the same way.”

During a live broadcast, Walsh began having a miscarriage.

Surrounded by screaming sports fans, Walsh tried to hide what she was going through:

“The juxtaposition of college kids going nuts behind our set, while I was losing a baby on it, was surreal. I was scared, nobody knew I was pregnant, so I did the show while having a miscarriage. On television.”

Unfortunately, that was just the start of Walsh’s problems, as she would go on to have two more miscarriages.

Walsh decided to try IVF treatments, which meant procedures, injections, and even more disappointment.

The couple did get some good news from the doctors. They managed to “salvage” two of her eggs.

Walsh noted: “I refused to even use them for a long time, because I couldn't bear the idea of all hope being gone. I blew off pregnancy tests, scared to know if it worked.”

The IVF procedure did work, and Walsh was soon pregnant with twins. However, Walsh was reluctant to announce her pregnancy after everything she’d been through in the past.

So Walsh decided to hide her pregnancy and told almost no one she was expecting.

She explains: “I spent a third straight football season pregnant, strategically picking out clothes and standing at certain angles, using scripts to hide my stomach. There would be no baby announcement, no shower, we didn't buy a single thing in preparation for the babies, because I wasn't sure they'd show up. We told very few people we were pregnant, and almost no one there were two.”

Walsh announced the arrival of Hutton and Brees Buschmann a couple of days after they were born, and the happy mom was at home with her twins on Mother’s Day this year.
