A guide on what to say to someone after they have had a miscarriage.
It can be hard to know what to say to someone who has had a miscarriage and this can often leave you feeling awkward and the person who’s had the miscarriage, feeling unsupported or invalidated in their loss. Likewise, you can be so afraid of saying the wrong thing that you say nothing at all, which can come across as though you don’t care.
Of course if you haven’t experienced miscarriage or loss, it’s natural that it will be hard for you to know the ‘right’ thing to say. You want to be supportive, but genuinely do not know how to be.
