Quoting *Danielle88*((#2ontheway):" my friend was due on the 21st and the baby didnt have a heartbeat. something happened with the umbilical ... [snip!] ... and i dont know how to help. what can i say to her? please help. i cant even imagine what shes going through right now."
so sorry for your friend's loss
It really depends on her what she will need. If she has other children, offer to take care of them for a day...ask how you can help her. Make sure she knows she can ask for help and that it's ok. She will not want to cook or clean or do anything for awhile. Some people like to be alone, others need people around. The biggest thing is ask and keep on asking/texting/calling. make sure she knows you are there and thinking of her and her family! You seem like a great friend to be seeking advice. Also...as the year goes on remember those important would be milestones. I was so heartbroken when not one person said anything on the 3 month mark. It means so much to get an anonymous card in the mail or a simple text! Don't worry about reminding her because her baby will always be on her mind.
