A photographer wants women who’ve suffered miscarriages to know they’re not alone and assembled 40 mothers with their “rainbow babies” together for a photo shoot, which has since gone viral on Facebook.
Ashley Sargent organized the shoot on July 21 in Fyffe, Alabama. The photographer tells Yahoo Lifestyle that she came up with the idea after she noticed a trend amongst her clients requesting shoots with individual photos of their rainbow babies — a term used to describe healthy babies born after a miscarriage or neonatal death.
Sargent says the first shoot she had with a rainbow baby, she photographed the infant “laying down on a blanket with flowers arranged around, like a rainbow.”
After this, Sargent says more parents started reaching out to her for these types of photoshoots, and many commented and shared pictures of their own rainbow children. The photographer wanted to bring awareness to “how common it is for people to have a miscarriage.”
“When people think of a rainbow baby, it’s taboo. People don’t talk about miscarriage or the loss of a child,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
