Hmm.. that's a tough one, but can you be my mother in law? Mine literally patted me on the head and told me it's ok if we don't have children, she has other grandbabies :/

Do something nice for her. Tuesday is Babyloss Awareness day. Send her a pretty candle holder, with some information about the wave of light, and light a candle at home yourself. Make it known that you know these are your grand-babies, and her children, and that you love them and her and will not forget any of them.

Welcome to Remembering our Babies, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness

You could also offer maybe to take her out for a mani/pedi, or maybe facials at a local spa. Don't push her into talking about it, just be there for her. Letting her know it's ok to come around and that you won't talk about it unless she does.. might give her the courage to come out of her shell. Some don't like to talk about their losses with anyone, then there's others who will tell you the joy of every second of the pregnancy before it was over. A break from seeing a fertility doctor might be what she needs for now.

*hugs* to you Grandma. I'm sorry for the loss of your grandbabies.
