National Rainbow Baby Day shows that conceiving after loss is possible
Few things in life are more devastating than seeing a positive pregnancy test only to experience a miscarriage later. If this has happened to you, you might be wondering if conceiving after loss is possible. The team at Fertility Specialists of Texas wants you to know that it is, which is why we celebrate National Rainbow Baby Day on August 22.
Our Dallas-Fort Worth infertility specialists have been helping patients become parents since we opened our doors in 2005. During this time, we have helped many individuals and couples have their own rainbow babies after experiencing the heartbreak of miscarriage.
Learn about National Rainbow Baby Day
If you’re like many people, you might be wondering what a rainbow baby is. A rainbow baby is what many people call a child who is born after their parents have faced a miscarriage or a stillbirth. People think of them as the rainbow after the storm.
National Rainbow Baby Day was created to celebrate these little miracles, but that’s not all this day is about. You’re not alone if you feel excited about your bundle of joy but also sad about the baby who isn’t with you. It’s common for parents to experience a mix of emotions when they have a baby after having a miscarriage. As a result, this holiday is also a time to remember the baby who isn’t here today.
You may want to write a letter to your child or take time with your partner to remember your little one. Other ways to preserve their memory include sharing stories online, donating to a pregnancy loss group and starting a new tradition to honor the baby you lost. You and your partner can work together to see what feels right.
We can help you with conceiving after loss
If you haven’t been able to have a rainbow baby yet, our Dallas-Fort Worth infertility specialists can help. The first step is scheduling an appointment at our clinic to meet with one of our doctors and get diagnostic testing. Once your doctor has your test results, they can design a plan to help you with conceiving after loss.
Fertility medications or intrauterine insemination (IUI) can help in some situations, including when ovulatory issues are responsible. However, our team finds that in vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the best ways to help, especially when patients have had multiple miscarriages. In some cases, your doctor may also recommend options like preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) and donor services to help you welcome a baby.
If National Rainbow Baby Day makes you want to have your own rainbow baby, we can help. Contact us to schedule an appointment and take the first step.
