“A rainbow, the beauty that comes after a storm and a symbol of hope, is a description women lovingly use for their babies that are born after a miscarriage, still birth, or infant loss.
For women who have experienced a loss, conceiving a “rainbow baby” doesn’t make them forget the loss, take it away or diminish it, but it does give them hope for a new chance at motherhood.”
After ten years and two miscarriages, I finally welcomed my “rainbow baby”. I am grateful for his arrival but yet I still mourn the loss of my others.
The journey was not easy, I was grief-stricken and my heart was filled with guilt. Each day I lived by clinging tightly to the little hope that was still dwelling in my heart.
Today I started to see the setbacks in life as milestones that needed to be overcome rather than as road blocks.
I am grateful for all the people who have reached out to me during the trying times. Some are strangers who spoke to me privately or left encouraging comments on my blog. They all taught me well and I am grateful.
By sharing my experiences, I hope you too can move on positively as I did.
As you are grieving, spare a thought for those who are supporting you all these while. It may pain them to see you like this.
Start loving yourself again. Let go of the guilt. Only then, you can embrace life again.
Therefore, my personal mission is:
Empowering women and aspiring mums…
I know because I have been there, done that.
