Bud & Sister Hollie

We started trying for a baby in 2011. We were quite realistic in how long it might take, but within two months I had fallen pregnant. I think we were both in shock at how quickly it happened and I constantly worried as I had no symptoms whatsoever. When we had our 12 week scan…

Baby Athena

Every morning I wake up and can’t wait to give my rainbow baby lots of cuddles and kisses, but my life has not always been so full of joy. During February 2011 my partner Daryl and I found out we were going to have our second child. We were looking forward to finding out the…

Baby Milly

In the aftermath of losing my son I needed to fall pregnant as soon as possible. I wanted to show Finlay that I would have been a good Mum, that he would have been safe with me. Against advice, we started trying straight away and luckily for us, two months later, I have a positive…

Baby Amber-Willow

My daughter Amber-Willow is a rainbow baby. She is five months old and has just started to wean having this week tried pear, apple, butternut squash, sweet potato, toast, beans, soup and this morning some of my pain au chocolat. Like her dad and brothers she would rather give broccoli a miss! Amber-Willow aka Spider…

Baby Harry

Baby Jacob

At the beginning of December 2010, I discovered that I was pregnant again. We were already blessed to have a daughter; Megan aged five, and our angel Baby Katie was born in April 2010. Over the next few weeks, we told no one. Too scared that something could go wrong we kept putting off telling…

Baby Connor

In October 2008 we were delighted to discover that we were expecting our first baby. My pregnancy was what you would consider “text book”, only feeling slightly nauseous at the beginning. Five days after my due date I went into labour. We called Bournemouth Hospital, as I saw signs of bleeding to which a midwife…

Babies Ella, Abby & Robbie

As I sit cuddling my beautiful Rainbow Baby I am amazed at how quickly time passes when you have a baby compared to how endless a 9 month pregnancy seems, especially a rainbow one. You do a pregnancy test and feel that brief feeling of excitement followed closely by the feelings of fear, worry and…
