Dear Sonali, Sorry to hear about your friend. Miscarriages can be quite traumatic to the psychological health of a woman. Be with her in the journey of griefing by
1. Making her realise that it’s not her fault.
2. Asking her to seek a cause of the miscarriage from her doctor and the likelihood if it happening again.
3. Asking her to give time to herself for healing psychologically ( more than physical) before planning the next pregnancy.
4. Getting pre-conceptional check up done 3 months before she wants to try again.
Insist on only looking forward
If she still needs help, it’s a good idea to seek professional help in counselling
