Etiquette for unborn baby funeral

Hello My husbands cousin was pregnant and just lost the baby in her third trimester so they are having a memorial service this weekend. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of what I should bring, what is the etiquette or what would be a thoughtful gift? Thanks in advance.

I would echo what others have said and try to talk to them about the baby as time passes. Especially on what would have been the baby’s birthday (or due date etc) just telling your friend that you’re thinking about them will really help.

To add to the above, be there for them 6, 12, 18 months down the line. Let them know that you remember their baby. Most people never mention babies again for fear of not knowing what to say, it means the world to a grieving parent to know that their child is remembered and that you are checking on them.

When I lost my boy it meant a lot that people sent him flowers and was there for us, also some food as we didn’t feel like shopping or cooking x

We had a star named after my late nephew for his first birthday my sister in law loves it we even chose a start in the consolation of his birthday sign

When my baby was born too early someone named a star after her and that was really special. The most meaningful thing you can do though is check back in in 6 months from now when everyone else has gone about their lives and say I think about your baby all the time and say the baby’s name. For instance when I saw this flower it reminded me of your baby. It will mean everything to them, their lives will never be the same and to know other people think of the baby they love more then anything is tummy be the only thing that really does help.
