What Parents Of Rainbow Babies Want You To Know

1. What Is A Rainbow Baby?
A "rainbow baby" is a term some parents use to describe a child that is born after a loss. This loss could be a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or a baby that has died in infancy.

This loss is sometimes called the storm, and in nature, a rainbow appears after one occurs, giving a sense of hope and new life. It’s never intended to be a replacement for the losses endured, but something beautiful that comes after a period of darkness.

We spoke with mothers about this sensitive topic and asked what their rainbow babies mean to them and  what they want you to know.
