“Six babies lost to have the honor to carry this rainbow baby,” – Jessica wrote. “I hope my story helps someone else to know they are not alone, as the journey of loss and infertility is dark and lonely.” This baby is their second child – the parents endured two miscarriages before they gave birth to a son, Corbin.

Miscarriage is the most common complication of early pregnancy. Among females who know they are pregnant, the miscarriage rate is roughly 10% to 20%.

“A rainbow baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean the storm never happened or the family is still not 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 <3” – wrote Pebbles and Polka Dots Photography.
