During the podcast, Julia spoke candidly about the profound impact of her pregnancy loss. In addition to her feelings of grief, Julia took listeners back to the moment when she first lost her pregnancy. 

The story started when Julia was 28 years old and had just married her actor husband, Brad Hall.

The two got pregnant quickly, which made Julia feel “very fertile [and] very womanly.” 

Unfortunately, Julia lost the pregnancy “quite late,” resulting in a bedridden state.

Julia called the experience a “nightmare,” revealing she ended up in the hospital with an infection.

The moment became one of Julia’s “greatest memories” because her mother, Judith Bowles, took care of her and the two experienced a new level of bonding.

Ultimately, Julia welcomed two healthy sons: Henry, 30, and Charlie, 25. 

Through her openness, Julia shed light on a subject sometimes overlooked and under-discussed. Julia continues to inspire both on and off the screen, using her platform to raise awareness and create meaningful dialogue around important issues. Simultaneously, Julia’s honesty and authenticity could help normalize a broader conversation about reproductive health. 

As the actress previously revealed, her new podcast hopes to provide a platform for experienced women to share their wisdom.
