Rainbow Baby Boxes
Our newest project is creating Rainbow Boxes to give families following the birth of their Rainbow Babies. A rainbow baby is a baby born after a miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal loss. We understand how challenging a Rainbow pregnancy can be and know that the birth of a Rainbow Baby may well be full of bittersweet moments.
The charity runs the East Lancs Rainbow Baby Journey group on Facebook, which is designed to lend a listening ear and support families through pregnancy after a previous loss. Our boxes are designed to congratulate families on the arrival of their Rainbow baby.
Our boxes are full of rainbow items including:
- a rainbow hat and blanket
- a rainbow vest
- an SD card so the family can use the hospital camera to take photos
- a rainbow keyring
- a rainbow hanger
- a wish bracelet
Our first set of Rainbow boxes were delivered to the East Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre on the 30th April 2020 and we were delighted to hear that 3 boxes were given out on the first day! The boxes cost approximately £40 for the charity to make so please donate so that we can ensure that every family who has a Rainbow Baby is able to receive one of our boxes.
