What is a Rainbow Baby?
A Rainbow baby represents the light after a storm
Quite simply it is the birth of a healthy baby after experiencing loss either due to miscarriage, premature birth or stillbirth. There is nothing quite like seeing the little blue line develop on the pregnancy stick and discovering you are pregnant, but so many mums, experience a tragic loss and it’s not spoken of nearly enough. The suffering and feelings of guilt and inadequacy and unimaginable pain. The appearance of the rainbow baby signifies the joy and peace after the storm, but in no way negates the feelings of loss and sadness experienced by a family.
I would like to lift the veil and talk about his, so other mum’s can get the support they need, and not feel isolated and alone.
