Oola's Takeaway

Gifts are great for mom because a miscarriage can be the hardest on her. But a pregnancy loss also affects other members of the family. Don't forget to check in with the father and siblings, when necessary. Simply make sure they are doing okay. And offer your services if they need some help while they recover.

You can offer to do the laundry, go grocery shopping, run errands, and take the other kids to school. Helping with some of the daily responsibilities for a few days can be a huge help while mom and dad are processing their grief.

As the weeks and months go by, don't forget to check in with your loved one to see how they are doing. This is especially important around the time the baby would have been due. Consider taking your friend out to lunch or sending a card to acknowledge the loss and let your friend know that she's in your thoughts.
