Stephania Jimenez thanks viewers after her absence

KSAT 12 San Antonio evening anchor Stephania Jimenez thanked the viewers after releasing a video addressing her absence due to experiencing a miscarriage.

Here is what Jimenez wrote on the KSAT website:

"When I took to social media on Sunday and shared news about my miscarriage, I didn’t imagine I’d be flooded with so many prayers, well-wishes and positive thoughts.

Your messages are giving me strength to power through, because before I told you what happened, I felt ashamed.

I wondered: was it something I did? Was I already such a bad mother that I couldn’t protect my baby?

As those thoughts swarmed my head, I started to get angry.

I was familiar with the research. By some estimates, about 20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

Knowing that, why was I blaming myself?

I realized that if I was feeling that way, others in my situation felt similarly.

I wanted to help.

So I picked up my phone, hit record and started talking."

Now, Jimenez wants to start a conversation about infertility and is working on a KSAT town hall meeting.

Jimenez, who has worked in several Texas TV markets, joined KSAT in 2021.
