What is ‘Rainbow Baby’?

A healthy baby born to parents or family who have previously suffered the loss of a child owing to various medical reasons including miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death is often referred as  a ‘Rainbow Baby’.

The name indicates the newborn’s ability to help the parents or family to heal from their past traumas or bad experiences.

However, rainbow pregnancies can be extremely challenging and emotionally exhausting as it involves various feelings such as guilt, sorrow, and depression, especially on the part of women.

The term first gained popularity among people who had  suffered the loss of their child, as the name indicates light over darkness and hope over despair. Glenn Maxwell Marries Vini Raman Ahead Of IPL 2022 (See Post).
