What is a rainbow baby? What you need to know
rainbow baby meaning wrapped infant

As the old saying goes, “always look for a rainbow after the storm.” It’s a kind way of saying, there’s always something good that comes after a tough situation or time in your life. If you’ve never heard that saying before, or maybe haven’t been in a circumstance that would warrant such a phrase, consider yourselves very lucky. It’s these types of scenarios that can make or break a person, but the life that carries on can sometimes surprise us. So what is a rainbow baby?  Much like the phrase mentioned above, parents that have suffered infant loss via a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or the neonatal death of their child must look for a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Becoming pregnant, and delivering a healthy and happy baby after grieving such a loss begs a commemorative and heartfelt term, rainbow baby.
Some say you are too painful to remember, I say you're to precious to forget. -Unknown

What is the rainbow baby meaning?
The term rainbow baby is defined by Oxford Languages as “a baby born subsequent to a miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of an infant from natural causes.” In layman's terms, the term refers to a baby that is born after the parents suffered the loss of a previous pregnancy due to stillbirth, miscarriage, or post-birth causes – natural or otherwise. It gained momentum in 2008 after the release of Christie Brooks's collection of stories, “Our Heartbreaking Choices: Forty-Six Women Share Their Stories of Interrupting a Much-Wanted Pregnancy.” Rainbow baby quickly spread to internet forums and support groups for parents grieving over the loss of their child(ren), and thus became a term regularly used among families and friends, eventually making the transition into pop culture and the media.
