My dear friend is lost her baby today. Shes 30 weeks and the baby's heartbeat stopped. She's being induced and is just devestated. My question is as her friend what can I and her other friends do for her? We're torn between wanting to be there for her and giving her her space. What would you have wanted your friends to do for you during this time? Would donations help as well?

I am so sorry for your friend.

If you want to give gifts i recommend food cards and cooked dinners.

Donations might be needed after I think 20 weeks the remains are treated like a body and cremation might be necessary. She may even want to do a funeral.

She might like someone to pack up her baby things for her?

Tell her to write here..She can tell her story and listen to ours...Spend time with her, watch a movie with her, get out of the house, do things that made her happy to keep her mind off the grief she is going through..

After our loss at 39 weeks I was not ready to see anyone right away. I really appreciated all of the cards and meals that we received though. Just let her know that you are there for her and she will reach out when she is ready. . .
