Rainbow Babies: Photo Gives Hope To Expecting Mothers Who’ve Had Miscarriages And Stillbirths


This beautiful photo of a rainbow spectrum of pregnant mothers, taken by photographers Natalia Karpovovy and Elena Gannenko, has gone viral as a symbol of hope for mothers who have given birth to or are expecting “rainbow babies.”


“A ‘rainbow baby’ is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss,” explains Chastity Boatman, the blogger behind Every Child Is A Blessing. “In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.”


The photo was part of a competition hosted by a Russian photography site named Puzi Raduga, which means “Rainbow Bellies” in Russian. The site’s goal is to elevate the status of pregnant mothers in society, and it helps do this by hosting rainbow-themed pregnancy photo competitions.
