It’s such a hard thing to talk about, so if a woman shares her loss with you, listen. Even if it’s uncomfortable for you, just let her talk. The simple act of you listening, is allowing her to navigate her grief. Ask her how she felt during her pregnancy. Ask how far along she was, if they had picked out a name. If she wants to keep talking, then don’t be afraid to ask questions. This little person existed, if only for a brief period of time, and she wants the world to know it was real. This little person may not have had the right “tools in their toolbox” to keep growing, but that doesn’t mean it never happened.
