A guide on how to help a friend who has recently miscarried.



This resource has been designed to help you support your friend through the feelings of loss and grief she will be experiencing during this incredibly challenging time. When a friend loses a baby through miscarriage it can be hard to know what to say or do. Perhaps you didn’t know she was pregnant; you may have been the first person she called. Either way, this is a heartbreaking time for her and she will need you in the coming days and weeks.

If you have experienced a miscarriage yourself, you are more likely to have an understanding as to what she needs, but even so, everyone’s individual experiences, feelings and coping mechanisms are unique. We hope to guide you through the ways you can best support your friend during this difficult time.
