alllast visit: 4 days agomember since: Nov 15th 2011about me:
I received my PhD in Microbiology in June of 2012. I am now a postdoctoral fellow in the Ob/Gyn department at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. I specialize in women's health related research from cancer to STDs to pregnancy. My husband and I have been married for 4 1/2 years. We planned a pregnancy and got pregnant right away (thank you Jesus). We were excited about having our first child, however, our pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 10w. We are TTC and praying that the next one results in a full-term, healthy baby.
Rainbow babies: In some circles, babies born to families after the loss of a child are referred to as "Rainbow Babies." The idea is that the baby is like a rainbow after a storm. "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 color, energy and hope.
