Our second brave volunteer for the Rainbows of Hope Project is Natalie. Natalie is a very brave mum to Martha and Florence – her identical twin rainbow babies. Read below and watch the video to see more of Natalie’s pictures and to hear her story.
“After my husband and I got married we wanted to have children…things started to not happen, I was getting weird symptoms. The doctors wouldn’t listen to me. The referral got delayed four times.
Your friends tell you to try not to stress […] trying to have referrals and having them refused causes more stress.
I had a positive test…they sent me for blood tests. They phoned me and said, ‘Sadly it is unlikely this pregnancy will be successful.’
I was completely and utterly distressed – I had to go to a wedding and be happy but I was miscarrying our baby.
Yay! We were pregnant again! But this time incredibly scared. I started to get brown spotting again – we were miscarrying again.
The doctors said that until we had had three miscarriages in a row they couldn’t investigate it.
We found out we were pregnant again. I was lying there holding my cross praying, please let there be someone there…
She turned the screen around, ‘See this flashing? It’s your baby! And here is your other baby!’ “
