Celebrating National Rainbow Baby Day shows it’s possible to conceive after miscarriage
Anyone who has experienced one or more miscarriages understands how heartbreaking and devastating it can be. It’s common to wonder if it will be possible to have a baby in the future. Thankfully, National Rainbow Baby Day on August 22 shows that it is. Our Austin fertility center team wants to provide hope to our patients. That’s why we celebrate this holiday and show that it’s possible to conceive (and welcome a baby) after miscarriage.
What is National Rainbow Baby Day?
When people first learn about this important holiday, they often have questions about it. Most people first want to know what a rainbow baby is. A rainbow baby is a child who is born after their parents have experienced a miscarriage or a stillbirth.
It is joyous to have a baby, especially after experiencing a loss. However, it can also be difficult, as it can serve as a reminder of the child who isn’t with us today. National Rainbow Baby Day is a time to acknowledge and process all these feelings by celebrating the baby who is here and remembering the baby who is not.
Some people choose to acknowledge this holiday by writing a letter to their angel baby or taking time with their partner to remember this child. Others share their story online, donate to a pregnancy loss charity or start a tradition to honor their baby. Each family is unique, and there is no wrong way to spend National Rainbow Baby Day.

If you’re hoping to bring home your own rainbow baby, our Austin fertility center can help. We’ll start by ordering some basic fertility testing to identify why you might have experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth.
Using your test results and medical history, our team can develop a customized treatment plan to help you bring home a baby. Medications or intrauterine insemination (IUI) may be all that you will need. Or you may need to rely on in vitro fertilization or donor services to make your baby dreams come true.
