Quotes to Offer Condolences to Loved Ones

When someone is in pain or grieving, it is often hard to find the right words to make them feel better. You know you’ll never be able to take their pain away, so natural human tendency is not to say anything at all.

We don’t want to say the wrong thing that could make them more upset. You don’t want to come off as getting too much in their business or not showing enough empathy.

Unfortunately, no one will ever know the pain of experiencing a miscarriage like someone who has gone through it.

If you’re trying to comfort a loved one or offer encouraging words, you can recite these miscarriage quotes for a mom to show your empathy and how much you care.

I hope these miscarriage grieving quotes for moms and parents can bring you some peace and comfort in a terrible time. Positive thoughts for future pregnancies!
