    Olympian Nancy Kerrigan spoke out about infertility at RESOLVE New England on Saturday.

    (Published Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017)

    Nancy Kerrigan is sharing her heartbreaking experience with multiple miscarriages.

    The Olympic figure skating star delivered the keynote address Saturday morning at a New England infertility conference in Newton, Massachusetts.

    "I am honored to be the keynote speaker of the RESOLVE New England annual conference," said Kerrigan. "For nearly a quarter century, RNE has been running this event to educate people who are struggling to build their families. I know firsthand that this can be difficult, which makes support and available information critical."

    Last spring, Kerrigan revealed during an episode of "Dancing with the Stars" that she had six miscarriages during an eight-year span.

    In a subsequent interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," the Massachusetts native called the miscarriages "devastating" and said they were hard on her marriage to husband Jerry Solomon.

    Kerrigan says the miscarriages happened after the birth of her first child, Matthew, in 1996. She says she turned to in vitro fertilization for the births of son Brian and daughter Nicole.

    The event was organized by Resolve New England, which deals with fertility treatment, donor choices and adoption.
