What is a rainbow mummy?
It is the mummy of a rainbow baby!
What is a rainbow baby?
""Rainbow Babies" is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of colour, energy and hope."
Another saying I found which I found that actually helps me more is:
"Everyone wants happiness, no one wants sadness.
But you can't have a rainbow without a little rain"
So where does this begin? This begins with my journey as a life as a rainbow mummy. Becoming a mummy for the first time is always a overwhelming but wonderful experience. Becoming a mummy to a baby who has died is overwhelming and isolating experience.
So many emotions, but first, let's go right back to the beginning.....
