It is a real loss. Although the baby wasn't tangible to anyone but the mother yet, to her it was a child, and now it's a lost child. Ignoring it and forgetting it ever happened is the worst thing one can do.
And many mothers do name the child, at least secretly-- it stamps them with 'personhood' and makes the loss more tangible.
Let her know you're thinking of her, and of the lost baby, every now and again (because she will be). Her due date will be hard.Blade, MD
