Late term misscarrage/baby death

Today my husband found out from his bos that his coworker who left last week for maternity leave lost her child. She was due this week. 

My husband and I are in shock. The pregnancy was good she was happy and excited. It was baby 2 for them. 

I want to send a card and a gift for mom. What should I send?

Oh wow, I don't even know. Perhaps flowers and a condolence card? Definetly talk it over with your husband first. I am not good with those sorts of things either.

Flowers and a card - there are cards and such specifically for such a loss.

Offering to cook a meal, help with childcare, house cleaning stuff would all be great ideas. Losing a child is an all encompassing grief and the little day to day life stuff seems overwhelming those first few weeks. Also just letting them know you are there for support is great. Nothing you can do or say will make them hurt less, but knowing you have people to support you helps make it possible to make it to the point that it isn't quite as fresh.

Her physical recovery will be like any mother who gave live birth. You might want to bring family-friendly freezer meals b

Make a meal for them or offer to watch her first child and maybe flowers.
