Just be there for her.

This is my friend Katie’s blog, she has a post on what not to say to a bereaved parent but also just reading her story might give you some insight. http://www.wildflowers-blog.com/?m=1

Im very sorry for your friends loss. Ask about her baby, use his name... perhaps point her in the direction of SANDS too. There are some sweet willow trees that she might like, or perhaps a personalised candle. I didnt mind flowers but i know for some mums it made them upset seeing something else die. Im sure she will just appreciate you being there x
