The 64-year-old Basic Instinct star shared about her loss underneath an Instagram post from People magazine were Dancing With The Stars performer Peta Murgatroyd revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage while her husband, Maks Chmerkovskiy, was in Ukraine.

"We, as females don't have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss. I lost nine children by miscarriage," Stone wrote.

She continued "It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure."

"Instead of receiving the much-needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need. Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology [have] become lax at best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in [the] effort," she added.

Per Daily Mail, this isn't the first time the Casino actress has spoken up about the heartbreaking subject. Last year, Stone reflected on her miscarriages and applauded the "global sisterhood" for speaking out about "issues of loss and heartache".

Stone explained that she underwent "36 hours of labor alone" after losing a baby at five and a half months pregnant, disclosing that nurses stayed by her side, adding that she felt a "strong sense" of understanding.

During an interview on Radio 4 Women's Hour and BBC Sounds, Stone said she felt a "strong sense of sisterhood" from the nurses.

The star revealed: "When I lost my last baby, and then went back to the hospital and had 36 hours of labor on my own too, of course, birth nothing, and the nurses that had been in the hospital with me two days before when they removed the last baby came in and sat with me on their day off."

"I really felt such a strong sense of sisterhood and understanding. Because I would have been alone. And that's such an alone feeling anyway," she added.

Stone experienced several miscarriages during her marriage to ex-husband Phil Bronstein - whom she was with from 1998 until their divorce in 2004.

She told the hosts in her Women's Hour interview that she has a "lupus-related rheumatoid factor" that made it hard for her to carry a pregnancy to term.

Stone is now the mother of three sons through adoption: Roan Joseph Bronstein, 22, Laird Vonne Stone, 17, and Quinn Kelly Stone, 16.

The mother-of-three told Vogue Magazine in March 2019 that she was approved to adopt her first son Roan, who was born in 2000, while on the way home from having a miscarriage. She said that she felt as if "God was throwing [her] a life raft".
