    I hope it's ok that I'm posting here. I cannot say that I have experienced a mc or the loss of a child and I hope it is something I never have to go through. However, I randomly came across an author called Heather Spohr who had a very premature little girl who sadly later died age 17 months due to health complications related to her prematurity. She also experienced an early miscarriage in a later pregnancy.

    I have been reading some of her articles on Huffington Post -http://m.huffpost.com/us/author/heather-spohr - and many of them relate to her life and thoughts on being a parent (she has gone on to have 2 healthy children since) as well as her grief, losses and views on well wishers following the loss of a child.

    I may be wrong since I haven't experienced such heartache but I thought they may be an interesting/comforting read for anyone who has experienced similar, or knows someone who has lost a child and would like some guidance on what to say/not say to them.

    Stay strong and best of luck to everyone for future healthy babies.
