Rah Ali of "Love and Hip Hop New York" shares the first photo she took after losing her baby girl at 20 weeks old. The photo of the reality TV star looking out to sea just proves that for quite a while, she was "lost for words" after what happened. 


A Shocking Loss

"Love and Hip Hop: New York" star Rah Ali recently opened up about losing her child while she was five months pregnant, saying she was at a loss for words at the time. Losing a child will always be painful and difficult, but what Rah had to go through was extreme torment. 


After a healthy pregnancy, she suddenly went to labor at five months and ultimately lost her baby in the process. 

"It was the worst experience of my life."

Unexpected Labor

Ali experienced cramps during the last few days of her pregnancy. While she thought it was normal, she rushed herself to the hospital when the pain became unbearable. It was there that the doctors revealed she was actually in labor, and that she had to give birth as her cervix was completely open.


“I called my husband and he rushed home. The ambulance came and they took me to the hospital. That’s when they told me that my cervix was completely open and that my water had broken.”

Excruciating Pain

The entire thing was so painful for Ali, as she was not prepared for what was to come next. As a first-time mom, she was counting the days until her due date, and when it came early, it broke her heart. 


While the doctors were able to deliver her baby, Baby Sanaa only lived for a couple of minutes as babies do not survive if they are not in the womb at 20 weeks. 

“I held her … and she slept in the room with us until the morning when they took her away. I felt like I lost my soul.”

Although losing her daughter broke her, Rah is trying to find the strength to carry on with her life with the support of her family and friends.
