A Rainbow baby is a baby that is born to a couple who have lost their last child due to miscarriage, stillbirth or from their baby passing in infancy.
"It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean that the storm never happened or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath. It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and cloud. Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of colour, energy and hope".
My husband and I lost our first child last year, our daughter Roni, when she was only nine days old. A year later and we have been very lucky to welcome our own rainbow baby, another daughter, Mala into our family.
I have put together a collection of unique rainbow inspired gift ideas from beautiful business in case you may have a rainbow baby in your life and wish to gift them with something special and sweet.
I will continue to add to this collection as I come across sweet rainbow gifts for rainbow babies. Please feel free to comment if there are any business out there doing doing items that I have not listed.
