Miscarriage Quotes by Ellen M. DuBois, May 23th, 2020by Ellen M. DuBois on 05/23/20
When a friend needs you after she's miscarried, don't try to figure the "how" of it all- she'll let you know. Sometimes, it's simply the comfort of knowing you're with her. What matters is that you're there.- Ellen M. DuBois
All we want to do is help a friend who's miscarried. What to say? Should you bring them something, send a card, ask how they're feeling?
Acknowleding what she's been through, letting her know you're sorry for her loss and being there are so important. She may not want to talk about it. Perhaps sitting in comfortable silence while she rests is exactly what she needs. Maybe she will want to talk, and you're there for her. Listening is such a gift to offer someone who needs to be heard. Support comes in many forms. Being there, whether in person (if possible) or touching base via text, phone, etc., is the greatest, most valuable way to show you care.
To all who have suffered a miscarriage, I am so sorry for your loss. I wish you love, peace, support and healing.
