What Is A Rainbow Baby?

A rainbow, the beauty that comes after a storm and a symbol of hope, is a description women lovingly use for their babies that are born after a miscarriage, still birth, or infant loss. A rainbow baby is a very special thing, as it is a baby that comes after a tragic and upsetting loss. Rainbow babies can bring much joy and comfort, but they can also bring grief and pain, as they are a reminder of what has been lost as well. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Take Enough Time

One of the most important things to remember about conceiving after pregnancy loss is to take enough time to heal and recover from your loss before trying to get pregnant again. It is true that it does not take very long for a woman’s body to physically heal after a miscarriage, but sometimes there are emotional scars that need more time to heal. Make sure to wait until both you and your partner truly feel up to trying again.

Try Your Best

When you are trying to get pregnant after a loss, you want to take all things into consideration. Do whatever you can to improve your chances of conceiving and of going on to have a healthy and happy pregnancy. Some things that you can do are take a prenatal vitamin every day, eat a healthy and well balanced diet, get enough exercise, reduce stress, get enough sleep, avoid drugs, alcohol and tobacco products, and ask your doctor before taking any medications.

Let Go

One of the hardest things to do when you are trying to get pregnant after a pregnancy loss is to let go of the guilt and worry that surrounds the loss. Getting pregnant after a loss can usually fill a woman with anguish and worry, and she will be stressed out every step of the way.

Women also sometimes feel guilty when they get pregnant after a loss, since they might feel like they are responsible for what happened before. It is important to make an effort to let go of all of those negative emotions that could drag you down while you try to conceive again.

Talk To Your Doctor

Another thing that can be a great help when you are trying to conceive after a loss is to find a supportive and understanding OBGYN who can help you along the way. A good doctor will take the time to listen to your concerns, fears, and questions and explain everything to you.

Choosing a good doctor is very important, since it is the person who can help you most along your fertility journey. Make sure to explain everything to your doctor and let him or her know exactly the kinds of worries you are dealin with.
