Our Rainbow Baby

"A rainbow baby is a baby who is born after a parent loses a child. It is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean the storm never happened or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath. It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of colour, energy and hope."


Matt and I are delighted to announce the safe arrival of our third son, Henry James, born on Thursday 10th October 2013 at 5.19am, weighing 7lbs 14oz. Our beautiful and precious rainbow baby is finally in our arms and we are so in love with him. There are no words to describe the joy we felt when he was born into this world with loud cries, it is a moment we will always cherish. We're spending our early days with him marvelling at his perfect little face and enjoying plenty of cuddles! Thank you to everyone who kept us in their thoughts and prayers during my pregnancy, each and every kind word and sentiment brought us comfort and helped us through the difficult times.

  91. Awwww he's so cute! Congratulations - having my own little rainbow child from experience you'll pinch yourself every single day, as I do even after 7 years, at how lucky you were to bring Henry home! Everytime I look at my rainbow child I am overwhelmed with happiness - the sadness however is always there in the background - I guess it just becomes a part of you. Hugs and enjoy him xx

  97. HI Amy, Sarah here from Twitter (@Sarahies) I am SO behind with my fave blog catch ups and missed totally missed this. I am SO SO happy for you and Matt on the birth of your gorgeous baby Henry. I was completely devastated for you to hear about your loss last year and I was praying you would have a safe pregnancy and birth. It bought a few tears to my eyes to see all of your gorgeous pictures and lovely blog posts to see him and I am so over the moon for you. Sending massive kisses and cuddles to you, Matt and Henry! Sarah x x
