Rainbows symbolize hope and renewal, especially for parents who have lost an infant but are now expecting a healthy baby. While miscarriages and stillbirths are fairly common, moms who have lost a baby often feel alone in their pain. Society offers few outlets for parents to express their emotions and honor their pregnancy loss.
Nothing can describe the experience of having a rainbow baby better than hearing directly from rainbow moms themselves. Each of these lovely ladies and their families have courageously decided to share their stories.

WHAT IS A RAINBOW BABY?
A rainbow baby is a baby born shortly after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth or death in infancy. This term is given to these special rainbow babies because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving us hope of what’s to come.
