In a video of her in the ER posted on Instagram she wrote, "My head really hurts (not like a headache — like new blood hurt), and I feel another infection in my respiratory system creeping up (no I don't have Covid, I was tested) which also happened after new blood last time." She then asked for tips on natural integration of blood. She ultimately miscarried.

James also took to Instagram to convey his feelings on the matter, saying of his wife's miscarriage, "The soul we'd been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body."
