Pregnancy After Multiple Losses
We decided to start a family in 2000. Within 3 months I was pregnant and 9 months later we welcomed our daughter into our lives. 7 months later, I fell pregnant unexpectedly and found out on Christmas Eve that I'd miscarried.
Rainbow After Multiple Miscarriages
I’d always been a perfectionist and a planner, and having a baby was no different. As a 27 year old with no chronic medical conditions, I thought conceiving and carrying a baby to term would be a walk in the park. However, this journey taught me that life is dynamic, and most importantly, unpredictable.
My Rainbow Baby
I’m sitting here writing this with my rainbow baby laying on my chest. To those of you currently pregnant after one or more losses, I bow down to you. It’s far from an easy path you’re embarking on. It's a complete and utter emotional rollercoaster.
I am 1 in 4 - The Journey to My Rainbow
They say 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in miscarriage. 1 in 4 took on a different meaning to me after my last loss – it meant only 1 in 4 of my pregnancies resulted in a baby in my arms to take home.
My Rainbow After Many Storms
In November 2015 we welcomed our first daughter into the world. She was a surprise pregnancy but welcomed none the less. When she was born we had it all planned out, we wanted an 18-month age gap between our children, so at nine months we would start trying.
A rainbow after a storm
This experience has taught me strength, and to trust that even though we may be experiencing one of the biggest storms of our lives, a rainbow is always around the corner.
When I was 16 weeks pregnant I could feel my babies tiny kicks from within. I woke up one morning in February 2018 and remember looking in the mirror and not feeling pregnant.

Krystal Stivactas - my story
We experienced 5 losses, 4 of which occurred within 1.5 years
Laura Waistell - my story
After losing 3 babies to early miscarriages, and each time realising just how taboo the subject was I went looking for others who had gone through similar experiences.
I found talking openly about it helped my mental health immensely. The other men and women I spoke to agreed we need to open up the conversation. I don’t think anyone should feel alone in this so I’d like to help if I can.
Libby Huth - my story
It’s surely one of the loneliest and bewildering experiences I’ve ever had.
Niti Nadarajah - my story
Having given birth to a little girl 9 years ago, I never imagined that the journey to give her a sibling would be one filled with grief, depression, and anxiety.
I'm now a Mum of three, this is my story.
2 years, 4 losses and a Rainbow
It’s wild to think that without all of our losses we wouldn’t have Chloe. She is exactly who we needed to create our little family.
Our losses stay with us forever with Debra Lawrance and Liz Ellis
Debra Lawrence and Liz Ellis generously opened up a conversation around a campfire on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here about their experience of pregnancy loss. We were then privileged enough to have them join us for an episode of our podcast - you can view the episode here:
