Miscarriage is a word used to describe the early loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks of pregnancy. Unfortunately, between 10 and 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.
Miscarriage can be something that people don’t share. It can be very hard on the family to navigate through this loss. When that family is able to have a child it can be a time of uncertainty. Sometimes it can feel hard to celebrate the new child when they have lost before.
One way to celebrate the birth of the rainbow baby, without forgetting those that were lost before, is with a rainbow baby blanket. A handmade blanket is always a wonderful gift for a new mom and baby and rainbow blankets are a special way to show your love.
