My friend had a early miscarriage, I wanted to make her something but I don't want her to cry every time she sees it. Would that be a good idea or should I just leave her be?

Make her something. Its thoughtful and will let her know you acknowledge her loss. As an angel mommy, it meant the world to me to get aomething as a tangible reminder

Yes, she will appreciate it. It's difficult sometimes because it's like they never existed. Having a memento is a bittersweet reminder of a little one that was loved yet lost.

Thanks for replying, I don't even know what to say, but I can create and hopefully that helps her in some small way....

Get her a gift basket. Put a cozy blanket in there, pjs, slippers, a book, chocolate, coupons for whatever.

A teddy bear or a blanket would be nice. It's something she can cuddle up to when she is feeling down.

Acknowledging it and letting her talk about her feelings without using cliches. http://www.miscarriagesupport.org.nz/helping.html

I had 3 miscarriages and am so grateful to the friends who made an effort to be there for me. A lot of people pulled back because they didn't know how to deal, and it's not what I needed.

I can only speak for myself, I said no.
6 pregnancies and 2 living children later, and as thoughtful as it is to do for a friend, if I had a keepsake for every child I lost then I honestly don't think I would have gotten passed it.

Other people are different though and handle these things differently.
Whatever you choose to do though, I'll be sending healing prayer to your friend.
