DD had a miscarriage - advice please

My dd was pregnant with twins and had a miscarriage today. I'm heading over there to spend some time with her while her dh takes their son to his tball game.

I want to bring her a "care package" and have some marinated chicken and rice so they don't have to cook, plus I thought I'd get her some chocolate.

Anything else?

Just be there for her. Let her know it's ok to grieve for as long as she needs to.

Do NOT tell her it's God's will or that she can/will have more kids. Don't minimize her pain.

If she drinks, a nice bottle of her favorite wine, a good book, and a bubble bath.

When I had mine my momma brought me a flower and a balloon from my daughter. Hope your daughter gets better soon. If she wants to just cry on your shoulder let her.

My friend brought me an ice cold beer when I miscarried. 

But in all honesty just having people there for me helped the most.

Maybe see if there's any help needed around the house while she rests. How far along was she? Hugs to you all.

Just be there. Don't say anything other than you are sorry and how can you help? Listen to her. Let her vent, cry whatever. Dont try to fix it. You cant. Just follow her lead.

Dinner and a big giant hug sounds good.
