When someone is in mourning, don't tell her to put things into perspective, or look on the bright side. Saying, "You already have two healthy kids" or "Be grateful for the children/husband/home/career that you do have" won't help. Chances are, she already is grateful for all of the good in her life and that doesn't make the death of a baby any easier.
