Rainbows, rainbows, everywhere!  This first birthday party theme is all over the place!  And why wouldn’t it be!?  The vibrant colors of a rainbow baby cake smash Los Angeles are absolutely gorgeous and a perfect color scheme for a birthday party!  Plus, they go so perfectly with the other hot party themes such as unicorns and mermaids for girls, or airplanes and hot air balloons for boys.  But you’re probably not just seeing rainbows for parties.  As you’ve been browsing images for newborn and maternity portraits, you’ve probably stumbled upon many rainbow photos!  Why is this you ask?  Now, more than ever, Rainbow Babies are being celebrated, and also talked about.

So, what is a Rainbow Baby?
A Rainbow Baby is the name that’s been coined for a healthy baby born after a miscarriage, stillbirth or loss of an infant.  Just like a rainbow appears in the sky after a storm, the term “rainbow baby” symbolizes hope and healing.

For those who have experienced the loss of a baby, the birth of a rainbow baby is a time of immense joy, reflection, healing, and mixed emotions.  Rainbow babies are often described as ‘miracle’ babies due to the powerful impact they can have on helping parents heal after a loss. However, rainbow pregnancies can bring strong feelings of anxiety, guilt, and even fear.  Conflicting emotions of honoring a baby who has died while celebrating one that’s healthy — and grieving a loss while celebrating new life — often accompany a rainbow birth.  The exact number of rainbow babies born every year isn’t known, largely because miscarriages are often under or unreported. –Healthline
