This post is similar to my previous, Making Mother’s Day easier for someone who has lost their Mum, but there’s a stark difference with this one. In the simplest and most general terms, we expect our parents to pass before us (not lightly overlooking those who are sadly taken from us too early in life). What we don’t expect or plan for is to suffer the loss of a baby, and it’s not something that will ever be overcome. Mother’s Day, and the run up, for someone who has suffered baby loss or a miscarriage can be extremely hard. It doesn’t need to have been a recent bereavement, the loss of a child will always cut deep, it’s something you carry with you always. Below are 5 ideas to comfort a bereaved Mother, not only only Mother’s Day, but all year round.
If you are close to someone who has lost a baby or suffered a miscarriage then hopefully the ideas below will be helpful.
