ONE IN FOUR.
That is the number of women who experience a miscarriage or infant loss in their lives. Every single day in the US, 2,000 women lose a baby to pregnancy/infant loss. That’s 700,000 a year. One quarter of all of the females in this country. The numbers are staggering and, yet, women who go through this feel SO. ALONE.
There is something that is gaining awareness and helping to open up the conversation on this, a term for the babies we have after a loss... Rainbow Babies. They're our beauty after the storm. The color after the grey. The light after the dark.
While our rainbow babies are celebrated and loved so much, they don't take the pain away. We don't forget the loss. BUT, part of the beauty of the rainbow baby is the significance they give to those lost. They acknowledge the loss of one babe, while celebrating the life of another. There's nothing more beautiful.
I don't hesitate to share that I too am a rainbow baby mama. My youngest, Miss Monroe, is our rainbow baby. And our last baby. So she's kind of our whole world. I know firsthand the anxiety that goes with a pregnancy following a loss. And the joy you experience when you make it through to the other side and meet your sweet rainbow baby. So here at MiraBella Photography, rainbow babies are CELEBRATED.
I frequently run specials for Rainbow Baby mamas and I will always create custom sets for your rainbow babies if you want them. They can be understated small details or front and center. So message me today if you want to celebrate your rainbow after the storm... as a newborn, sitter, or in a rainbow cake smash to celebrate the passage of their first year.
