Childbirth After Miscarriage: Forever Connected With Grace & the Birth of My Rainbow Baby by Kim Kusiciel
When we found out we were expecting for the third time, we couldn't believe it. We were blessed! Right at the 12-week mark, I had an ultrasound. I went into my appointment feeling happy to see my baby on the monitor. Instead, there was a lot of silence and the ultrasound tech turned the monitor away from me. I knew instantly something was wrong.
My doctor came in and told me that he could not hear "what I should be hearing" and that I would have to go for a second ultrasound. I knew she was gone. It was confirmed a few days later and I had a D&C. We named her Anabelle Grace. Those were sad days, but after that storm grew a beautiful and bright rainbow. My fourth, albeit anxious-ridden, pregnancy resulted in the birth of a bright-eyed and spirited daughter. My rainbow baby, Danielle Grace.
