How can you help a friend who has had a miscarriage cope with the loss?
Let her express her feelings to you and sympathize with her. Remind her that you care about her. Basically, just be her friend and let her confide in you.
I think that validating your friend's loss is the most important thing you can do for her. Listen to her feelings, and make sure she knows you understand that it's alright (and healthy) to grieve her loss. Miscarriage can be misunderstood by many (especially those who do not have children), which makes it even harder to heal from. Validation is key - make sure she knows that.
