Hive mind! Halp!
A peripheral friend* recently gave birth. It was a high risk pregnancy, and while the baby is healthy, mom had a serious time of it. She had many complications and lost 1/3 of her blood. She's refused visitors for the first three weeks, and according to the dad, she completely shuts down when her infant daughter cries. Any advice on what we might send to the new family to help? We just want to show we care about the new family.
*the father is a close friend of Mr. Farce, but I'm not close with either of the couple.
