Beyoncedoes not describe the miscarriage in detail, she reveals that they discovered something was wrong during a routine doctor’s appointment. It was very early on in the pregnancy. "I flew back to New York to get my checkup—and no heartbeat. Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat."
Beyonce shared that the experience was incredibly hard, saying, "I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I've ever written in my life. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I've ever been through."
