In the heartbreaking post, Maya wrote: ‘I had a still birth at 38 weeks. I always heard of it but never imagined I’ll be part of the statistics… Instead of delivering a baby, I get to go home with a memory box… I do not wish this on anyone. What was a regular weekly checkup turned into a nightmare that I never imagined would happen to me…’

‘Given I share my pregnancies in the show I knew I’ll have to post this and avoid “when is your due date” question. You will always be in our heart Mason Miller,’ she wrote in the post shared in November.

She previously spoke out in the past about her fertility struggles, revealing she had suffered two miscarriages before welcoming son Aiden in April 2019 and daughter Elle Madison in May 2020.

Maya announced she was pregnant with their third child in July 2021.

Last week, Maya reflected on her loss via her Instagram, revealing that she is still healing from her loss but that staying active has helped her copy with the pain.

‘Everyone handles their loss in their own way, but for me I find the key is to stay busy. A healthy distraction always keeps me going.’

Adding that it helped to ‘get to work, socialize with people, get your body moving (endorphins), and talk to someone. From my experiences, I know the pain of loss won’t heal overnight, but today is a great day to begin or continue furthering the healing process.’

Maya spoke out about how she struggled to watch Selling Sunset’s season five, where she was 22 weeks pregnant at the time of filming.

Maya said during the reunion for season five, that her son died in a ‘freak accident’ due to umbilical cord compression.

‘It’s been four and a half months and time helps. I want to say thanks to each and every one of you, whenever s**t hits the fan, everyone was so kind here. Life happens, we don’t know how things will happen. I was 38 weeks, and it was a freak accident.’

She continued: ‘We just got the autopsy back and it was just a bad accident with the cord. Mixed with some swallowed placenta.’

‘But I’m doing much better and I have my husband, he’s amazing. My kids are great. They keep me going, work and I’m busy. I don’t have time to sit and cry all day long, I have my moments, that’s part of grievance, and just take this opportunity to raise voice for stillbirth and pregnancy loss,’ she said.
