  1. Its great she has a friend like you. I would suggest you seek professional help considering her condition.

  2. This can be really dangerous right? I mean she is pregnant…all this depression and sadness is going to affect two lives. Its great she has a friend like you who is genuinely concerned about her. Maybe you should consider getting some professional help…

  3. * She needs lots of emotional support so first try to give her that.*p**p** Pregnancy is the most critical time of a woman's life so some one should should take care of her. She is carrying another life in her.*p**p** She also need lots of good friends with whom she can cherish this time and forget what has happened to her. *p**p** If possible she should go to any other place so that she can disconnect with negativity around her.*p**p*Lots of strenghth and good wishes to your friend. *p*

  4.  *p**p*The method to help her cope with the grief, would depend upon the reason for her overwhelming distress. Is the heartbreak because of a separation with the husband or the death of a loved one ?*p**p* *p**p*Generally speaking, you need to spend time with her, trying to distract her attention from the issue. Try involing her into discussions about things that make her happy. Talking and planning small little things for the baby to come, can also make her feel forget the pain for sometime. A baby is a symbol of hope and you must try to utilise this natural feeling.*p*

  5. She has a greater reason to live for! And that is her baby. She has to become a mother now and give someone the care of a mother's. I think she should focus on that and have the patience to see if things fall back into the place or not. But right now her mental health and physical health should support her pregnancy and her baby. You should be there for her always!*p*

  6. This is so sad. Do pause and think…maybe her hormones are acting up and she is a little too sensitive. Though she has the right to be but if we think purely from her pov if a friend tells her that maybe she is over-reacting she may just take a little control?  *p*
