Books on Miscarriage
Books and devotionals about miscarriage are really helpful. There are books for couples, devotions, religious books on miscarriage and nonreligious books. Try to choose a book at corresponds to their religious leanings. Now is NOT the time to try to evangelize your atheist friend.
If possible, include a little note in the cover, Something like, “I am so sorry you are going through this. Love, ___” is perfect.
Books About Miscarriage For Kids
Talking to your kids about the loss of their baby brother or sister is so difficult. My kids and I loved to read these books together. It helped them to process what happened and helped us to grieve together as a family.
Some of my favorite gifts I received after my miscarriages were jewelry. My children had died and no one in the outside world knew about them. Wearing a necklace or bracelet in honor of them helped me feel more connected to them.
Statues and Other Memorials
Willow tree statues, angel statues, and remembrance statues are all great sweet gift ideas for a mom suffering a loss. In fact, I have remembrance statues for each of my angel babies. They are beautiful reminders of the little souls I have yet to meet, and even now, almost 5 years later, I still pass by my statues and say a little prayer, smile on my face, in remembrance.
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter whether you give a book, jewelry, a statue or even just a simple card or note. What’s important is that you are acknowledging their loss, and remembering their baby.
So often people don’t know what to say or do, so they say and do nothing. The best advice I can give you is this.
