Childbirth After Miscarriage: Forever Connected With Grace & the Birth of My Rainbow Baby

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.

I am sorry for your loss. Your article touched me. I had to share that I also had a miscarriage and my next son was born with a birth mark by his eye. We believe it is from our child before, I like to think a kiss, which is Part of us all. ❀ Happy Mother's day.

Thank you for sharing @scannoe. My daughter was also born with a large mark on her arm, we call it her angel kiss. :)
