Need support advice

*If this isn't the appropriate place for this, please let me know*

Close friends of ours just experienced their 3rd subsequent loss, at 12 weeks. Their other two losses were at 9 and 11 weeks, I believe. We are so saddened, they have a beautiful son the same age as our youngest (we met them in our birth class 3 years ago) and we really want to support them. We lost a set of triplets 4 years ago, so we know about loss, but ours was earlier and the passage of time has healed most of that wound, so really it pales in comparison/relationship to their pain. I just don't know how to support them, encourage them, and help them through this, their 3rd. I also have a great deal of "pregnancy guilt" right now, in light of their news, having just discovered that we are expecting again. I am not sure what to do, except to do nothing/say nothing, and let time heal them, but I so desperately want to help them, or be there for them, at the very least.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
