Lily Allen suffers miscarriage

Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies, Celeb Parents, In The News, That's Entertainment

Singer Lily Allen who just a month ago joyously announced her pregnancy has reportedly suffered a miscarriage. According to statistics, one out of five pregnancies ends in miscarriage, sometimes so early on that the woman didn't even realize she was pregnant. Even though most women have had at least one miscarriage, that knowledge is of little comfort when it happens to you.

There are certain things one should NOT say to a woman who has just lost a baby:

  • You can always have another!
  • But the baby is an angel now!
  • It's probably for the best.
  • At least you didn't really know the baby yet.
  • There must have been something wrong.
  • Do you think it was because of something you did?
  • (If they already have kids) At least you already have children!

Good things to say to someone who has miscarried:

  • I'm here for you.
  • What can I do to help?
  • I'm so sorry.
