Mom’s Reaction to Holding Her Newborn Rainbow Baby is So Powerful

Every birth is emotional and powerful, but that’s especially true when a “rainbow baby” is born.

Birth photographer Laura Fifield has documented several rainbow baby births and says they’ve all been special. However, a recent rainbow birth she captured has one particular standout photo that is giving us the chills.

Lila and her husband Tim were saddened after Lila lost her third child as a result of difficulties with a tubal pregnancy. After the loss, she was thrilled and anxious for her rainbow pregnancy when she finally became pregnant again.

“I gained an amazing appreciation [of the] delicacy of both pregnancy and my own life,” Lila wrote on Laura’s blog in a post sharing photos of her daughter’s birth. “One year after our loss, I was holding Audrey Joy, our fearfully and beautifully made rainbow baby, who was the most priceless gift of all.”

“Rainbow baby” is the term for babies born after a miscarriage or stillbirth are proof that there is reason to hope, and that dreams do come true.

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 color, energy, and hope.

Lila told birth photographer Laura Fifield, “I was heartbroken and my husband was terrified at the thought that he had almost lost his wife and mother to his children. I screamed out to God, asking “why,” with eyes overflowing with tears. I was alarmed and perplexed. I only received one reply: “I will spread joy with this.”

The couple were able to conceive again shortly after Lila’s emergency surgery, and just one year after their heartbreak they are now holding their beautiful baby girl, Audrey Joy.

Lila’s words beautifully capture the essence of a rainbow baby, “I held tightly to God’s promise. My spouse and I grew closer to God and to each other as a result of this experience. I developed an incredible respect for the fragility of both pregnancy and my own life.”
