About Me

I am 27 and live in Norfolk, UK with my Rainbow baby, Jackson and my fluffy babies, Luna the Ragdoll cat and Lexi the Chihuahua.

In 2013, at age 21, I suffered a missed miscarriage with my first child, and daughter, Effy-Mae at 21 weeks.

Following this I started a blog to document my attempts to carry my next baby to term, which, thankfully, I did. After an eventful pregnancy (being treated for Antiphospholipid Syndrome with daily injections, and my overactive thyroid relapsed during the pregnancy), I delivered Jackson Theo in July 2014.

Since then my blog took a back seat to parenting my beautiful boy, but in 2019 I am reviving it to document my third pregnancy, an IVF baby conceived with a donor to enable me to become a mummy again, and give Jackson a much longed for sibling, despite having been single since splitting with my ex.

  • An 'Angel Baby' is a baby lost during pregnancy or early childhood, who sleeps in the clouds instead of our arms.

    A 'Rainbow Baby' is a baby born following the loss of an 'Angel Baby', a beacon of hope after a storm, while not denying the storm happened.
