Ladies I would love some help and advice. One of the ladies I work with was due to give birth in about a fortnight; sadly I was told this morning that she lost the baby over the weekend. There was something wrong with the umbilical cord, they tried to induce her but it didn

Sorry for your loss :(

Work sent flowers yesterday. If you dont mind me asking did you appreciate that or was it just a bunch of flowers? I just kind of feel I should be doing more, or sending something a little more personal...

I didn't know they would do a D&C with a late term loss that close to edd. Regardless that is awful! Just let her know gently that you're there for her.. I agree flowers are a little impersonal and I'm sure she will be getting a lot of them but at the same time just knowing that you're thinking about her is what counts. :(

I did. I actually still have the vase and have since put a bamboo plant in it :). The card was also very nice. Everyone wrote little messages in it and it meant a lot. I bought myself a wind chime and love hearing it when I'm outside or sitting by the window.

I lost my daughter 6 days after giving birth and what my friends did that really helped me was help with my other kids for a few days and helped clean and make food it really helped because I did not want to do anything but cry. So maybe you can make her a couple things for her to eat or something that helps with her daily life because when you lose a child the last thing you want to do is deal with chores trust me.
