    Default My friends baby died

    I just feel so sad. So sad for the beautiful little baby and so sad for my friends. I want to do something for them but what can be done? Nothing will bring their baby back and I guess all I can do is "be there"? It's been a couple of weeks. We've had the funeral. I sent a card and flowers and send virtual hugs by text every so often. They say they don't want visitors.
    Can anyone suggest anything I can do? Particularly if you have lost a baby, were there things that people did that you liked or things you wish people had done or hadn't done? Thanks.

    Firstly hugs to you and your friends.

    Maybe try and get in contact with LAMB Little Angel Memory Boxes. They provide memory boxes for people who have lost babies/children.

    They also can give you details of other support services in your area that your friend maybe able to access.

    They have a web page and a Facebook page.

    And I forgot to add food. Make freezer friendly food, fresh bread and milk, toilet paper etc. If they don't want visitors just place it on there door step with a little note.

    I was going to say this knock on the door and leave that way they don't have to deal with people if they're not up for it if they answer before you're gone just say hi explain you're just dropping and running and head off.
