Cupid’s Advice: 

Loosing an unborn child can be devastating. There’s no handbook on how to deal with this, especially if you have already told outside people. Cupid has some advice on how to help your partner through this:

1. Let them know that they’re not alone: Tough times with your partner can be significantly sensitive. Tried to comfort them by offering a shoulder to cry on or just even sitting with them and silence. This will make them more comfortable to opening up about their true feelings about the issue and create a closer connection for the both of you.

Try not to tell the story from their perspective if they’re not ready to speak yet. It will only make the situation worse by doing so.
