How to handle friend's miscarriage
My very good friend has a four year old son and recently miscarried her second child at 15 weeks. It was a terrible shock for all of us because she'd made it past the 12 week milestone. Since this happened, she has been finding it difficult to see me or speak to me. I want to help her and do anything I can to ease her suffering, but I think maybe the best course of action is to wait for her to be ready to come back to our friendship.
I have had two pregnancies, one textbook healthy and one high-risk that had a 50% chance of failing. Even though I faced the possibility, I have not lost a baby so I know I can't fully understand what she is going through. Does anyone have any advice how I can handle this? She is a very special friend and I don't want to hurt her more, or lose her as a friend.
