Allen announced her pregnancy by then-boyfriend Ed Simons -- one-half of the Chemical Brothers -- in December 2007 but a month later revealed she had miscarried.
Though she continued recording and putting out music through 2008 in advance of the release of her second album "It's Not Me, It's You" early this year, the performer now feels she did not cope well with the trauma."I didn't even start beginning to deal with it until the baby's due date," she explained.

Allen also stated that she still has therapy to help her come to terms with her loss.
