Just as it’s hard to know what to say and do for someone who has lost a baby (what do you say to someone who has lost a baby?) it’s also often very difficult to ask for help.
So here’s a little checklist that can be used by both parties – those who are trying to help, and for those who need help but don’t know how to ask for it.
Not all of these will work for all people – use your best judgement based on the personality of the mother.
However, I assure you that doing SOMETHING is always better than doing NOTHING.
I also posted this over at Sunshine After the Storm – our website dedicated to encouraging grieving parents and educating everyone trying to help them.
Please consider pinning this to your “hope I never need it” board.
