I knew before I ever even wanted kids that my mom experienced a miscarriage between having my sister and I... But I still thought it would never happen to me. After a relatively healthy pregnancy with my son I expected my second pregnancy to be easy... But it wasn't. We lost the baby at just 8 weeks, after that we waited for my body to heal and tried again... This time at 10 weeks we lost another... I felt like my body was broken... I felt like my body was killing my babies and I couldn't do anything to stop it. I felt like there was a hole in my soul that nothing could ever fill. After deciding we wouldn't try again because I was to scared of another miscarriage, we found out we were already pregnant. That baby is our RAINBOW baby. After a miscarriage or infant loss a baby born breathing is called a rainbow baby. As in the rainbow after the storm.
These amazing Mamas just like me suffered a loss. They are all currently expecting their Rainbow babies and I wanted to celebrate with them! So I put together a special project for these Moms and brought some other photogs along for the ride.
I am so proud and amazed at the response these photos have gotten.
If you are going through a loss remember there are so many of us who have also gone through it and we are here to support you! There are some amazing groups on Facebook that helped me when I felt very alone in my grief. I will include those links so if you need support you have a place with others who are also suffering. Just remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
