rainbow baby pregnancy announcement
Tired but spectacular is how this mama is feeling about being pregnant with her rainbow baby.
If you’re not familiar with the term, it means a baby born to a mom who has had a miscarriage, stillbirth or loss.
It’s the rainbow after the storm.
Michelle has wanted to be a mama for so long. Her daughter, Makenzie Marie was born in July, 12 weeks premature, weighing only 1 lb 12 oz. In October 2014, Michelle endured every mom-to-be’s nightmare. Makenzie passed away in the hospital. But Michelle’s love for her lives on.
Makenzie is thought of every time Michelle and her family sees a butterfly. Which is why we incorporated butterflies into her little Sister’s maternity announcement photos.
And that’s what makes this rainbow photo shoot so remarkable. Michelle decided to take all the love she has to give to a child and have another baby all the while celebrating the time Makenzie had on this earth.
In these photos, Michelle is about half way through her second trimester, and she hasn’t yet announced the pregnancy to anyone. She’s positively glowing (despite the exhaustion).
She has since announced her pregnancy and could not have chosen a more perfect day. St. Patty’s Day!
Michelle will be a wonderful mama to her baby girl, due this summer. We can’t wait to see this little one’s precious face!
