Oh I’m so sorry to hear, my heart breaks for your friend and everyone surrounding her!

I will have them in my prayers during this time of grief!

It’s always heartbreaking when your hear cases like these, even when you don’t know those involved, sadly this things happen more often that we think or wish. Let’s just hope these 2 women have enough strenght to handle this and are able to conceive soon. As for you, unfortunately I have no advice (I’m the worst person when it comes to comfort someone) but I wish you the best of luck.

Thats awful awful awful. Its the worst thing a person can go through in life.

There’s no right way to act or right thing to say, and sometimes “Im sorry” can feel wrong or like not enough.  Offer hugs, and keep reminding them you are there if they need anything. 

Having known a friend who went through something similar, I can tell you that the worst things people said to her were along the lines of “he’s an angel now” or “God wanted him to be in Heaven” etc –  after going through something like that, some moms are very very angry at God and have every right to feel that way – they don’t want to think about their baby being in Heaven or being an angel because they just want their baby alive and with them…

Oh how awful. I would offer condolences. Send a card and flowers and offer to be there if they need to talk-even if they don’t want you to talk back. They will appreciate that. I’ve had a friend tell me that what hurt the most aside from the loss was people ignoring it bc they didnt know what to do. As for the fear that one of those things will happen to you…those fears are normal. I think every pregnant woman fears miscarriage, and since these two things hit very close to home, your fear is intensified. Just remember…these things are not contagious. They are horrible and heartbreaking, but not contagious. I had to tell myself that repeatedly during my pregnancy.
