10 Sweet Rainbow Baby Announcement Ideas


Announcing a rainbow baby can be a giant bag of emotions. You’re excited and scared. You know people will celebrate, and you want to celebrate, but you may also have some lingering desire to temper your feelings. 

Why Do a Rainbow Baby Announcement?

For many parents, this is a way to honor the angel baby (or babies) they lost while celebrating the ones that are to come. It’s a way of recognizing that one child does not replace another, but the coming child was so longed for and brings much joy.

 Positive pregnancy tests

Again, I chose not to show a pregnancy test, but for many mamas, they’re so special for some people that they must be included. Again, you do you, mama!
