The double Gold-medal-winning swimmer paid tribute to hospital staff and husband Andrew Parsons in an Instagram post.
Rebecca shared a picture of her in her hospital bed with a cup of tea saying: “I’m slowly on the mend.”
She wrote: “On Tuesday me and Andy went to hospital for our 12 week scan only to discover we’ve had a miscarriage which resulted in emergency surgery.
“I managed to leave hospital Thursday only to be readmitted Friday. After a day of treating sepsis, a kidney infection and a fever I’m slowly on the mend. Long way to go but I’m in the right place.
“I can’t thank the hospitals and the staff enough, been so supportive. It’s such a devastating time but important in times like these we remember we aren’t alone and have so much support.”
She added: “@andrewparsons5 you have been my rock this week.
“Same with family and friends. We haven’t managed to process it all yet but I know with their support we’ll get through it.
“Once I’m able to leave hospital I’m extremely grateful I get to go home and give my 2 little ones the best hugs!”
