I know this is a small issue in the grand scheme of things but I don't want to cause any more upset to my friend. My friend gave birth to her still born son. I am 90% sure she was going to call him a particular name. She said that would be his name but she would wait til he was born to be sure. Do I refer to him as that name on the card rather than baby/ babyboy? It seems the right thing to do but I am not sure. any advice?

Hmm..tough one. I probably wouldn't use the name unless she tells people wha his name is. Has she named him formlly t others yet?

i think if not 100% sure on name, either find out or put beloved son.but im not at all experienced in these things.

Can you ask close family?

Agree if they have named him it would be much nicer to put it on the card, but failing that beloved precious ^much loved^ b4 baby will be appropriate.
