So rarely do people know what to do or say after someone they know has had a miscarriage, so many of us are unsure how to handle situations like these. After I miscarried my twins at 17 weeks, the feelings of loss, sadness, and confusion overwhelmed me. But the kindness from family and friends — old, new, close, and far — got me though many of my days.
I was loved. That was for sure. The niceties I received, by way of words, gifts, and personal time of others (and all listed here), helped pull me from the darker days.
If you have a loved one or dear friend who recently had a miscarriage and you’re struggling with what to do for her, try any one of these — or all of them — because it will make a difference for your friend.
Did you have a miscarriage? What nice things did people do for you that made you feel loved?
