I have struggled to write this post for a long time. I can’t figure out how to say these things without jumbling my many thoughts, sounding like I need immediate comfort OR if you have comforted me in the past, that you have done it wrong (which is not the case). So I have turned to other resources to share with you how to care for a friend that has lost their baby.
I would just like to add one thought. And that is it is always okay to ask. Everyone is different and everyone mourns differently. I keep seeing articles with titles like, “What NEVER to say to a friend that has miscarried.” And I think that scares some women from approaching their grieving friend. But personally, I appreciated the fact people were acknowledging my babies and my sadness and doing what they thought best to make me feel better. And if you have no clue what to say, just ask. Or bake cookies 🙂
