Along with her fellow real estate agents at the studio, Maya shared her tragic loss and shared how her child died in an “extraordinary accident” following an umbilical cord compression.

She also thanked her co-stars and her family for their support, before raising hopes of welcoming another child one day, noting it could aid in “healing.”

Maya explained, “It’s been four and a half months now and time helps. I want to thank you all, whenever it hits the fan, everyone here was so nice.

“Life happens, we film reality, we don’t know how things will happen. I was 38 weeks and it was a freak accident.’

She provided insight into the cause of the baby’s death, adding: ‘We just got the autopsy back and it was just a serious accident with the cord. Mixed with some swallowed placenta.

“But I’m much better and I have my husband, he’s great, my kids are great; they keep me going, work and I’m busy. I don’t have time to sit and cry all day, I have my moments, which comes with grief, and take this opportunity to raise my voice for stillbirth and pregnancy loss.

The star then looked to the future as she added, “I think part of the cure is getting pregnant again, I hope I will, we’ll see.”

Meanwhile, Maya opened up in a new interview about how hard it is to watch the show — which was filmed last year — in which she was pregnant.

Maya, who shares son Aiden, two, and daughter Elle, 23 months, with husband David Miller, told Metro.co.uk: ‘I was 22 weeks pregnant [during filming] and then i stopped filming because they tell you not to travel and take it easy. When I was 38 weeks pregnant, I lost the baby, I lost my son.’

She continued, “Then I had to see the show. And I’m very much pregnant there and I don’t have the baby. It wasn’t that easy to watch.

“I wasn’t sitting there sobbing with tears, I just sat and watched the whole season as a whole, not just focusing on me being pregnant. Was it easy? No, but I saw it and survived.’

The beauty added that she still “carries with her the trauma” of her loss, but received “amazing” support from the cast and producers of Selling Sunset.

The reality star admitted she had “the hardest day of her life” when she tragically lost her third child earlier in November.

“I had a stillbirth at 38 weeks. I’ve always heard of it, but never thought I’d be part of the stats…

‘Instead of giving birth to a baby, I can go home with a keepsake box… I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. What was a regular weekly check-up turned into a nightmare I can never imagine happening to me…

“Since I’m sharing my pregnancies on the show, I knew to post this and avoid the ‘when is your due date’ question. You will always be in our hearts Mason Miller’.

WHAT IS A STILLBIRTH?

A stillbirth occurs when a baby is stillborn after 24 weeks of pregnancy.

If a baby dies before 24 weeks of pregnancy, there is a miscarriage.

Not all stillbirths can be prevented, but not smoking or drinking, not sleeping on your back, and attending all prenatal appointments can reduce the risk.

What are the signs?

Signs may be that the baby is not moving as much as usual.

Pregnant women should contact their doctor immediately if they notice a difference in their baby’s movement.

What are the causes?

Stillbirths do not always have an obvious cause, but can occur due to complications with the placenta or a birth defect.

They are also more common if women suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, or an infection that affects the baby, such as the flu.

Stillbirths are more common if women have twin or multiple pregnancies, are overweight, smoke, are over 35, or have a pre-existing condition such as epilepsy.

What Happens After a Stillbirth?

If a baby has died, women can wait for their labor to begin naturally or they can be induced if their health is at risk.

Bereavement support groups are available for parents who have had stillbirths.

Some find it helpful to name their baby or have their picture taken with him.
