A baby after a loss or many losses.

"Rainbow Baby" is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.

Wow! What a beautiful term. I am so glad I asked.

I thought it meant like inter-racial or inter-cultural adoption.

Thanks for sharing.

I was hoping you'd post with that explanation. I love it.

Re: What is a rainbow baby?

i had a m/c on 12/19... waiting to see if my beta is negative on friday and if so, we will see if all my hormones are baselines and hopefully do another embryo transfer. I really hope I get my rainbow baby in a few weeks. I *love* that term and the meaning behind it.
