The words that really help when you don't know what to say.

The little things have a big impact.

Miscarriages can be absolutely devastating.

And friends, family and colleagues of those who suffer are often left wondering about how best to react to the loss.

Is it better to talk about it? Ignore it completely? Leave your friend to grieve, or bombard them with invitations to keep them busy?

While there is no one-stop-shop answer, bereaved parents have turned to social media to publicly thank those who helped them through their traumatic time.

Coinciding with Baby Loss Awareness Week, women and men affected by miscarriage or ectopic or molar pregnancy have shared the things they found helpful, using #SayingThanksBLAW15.

And the results are beautiful.
