What Rainbow Baby means to us
Following our own experience of baby loss, we vowed to break the silence surrounding it. I relaunched this business in 2018 in honour of our angel, so you will see that rainbows are a prominent theme throughout Wrap it By Tina. They are a sign of hope after a storm. Our rainbow baby Milli arrived in 2016 and whilst she gave us that hope after our loss, we always remember our angel.
What is a Rainbow Baby?
A rainbow baby is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.
The term here is given to special rainbow babies, as rainbows typically follow a storm, giving us hope of what’s to come.
Giving back whilst gifting
Following our experience, raising funds and awareness about baby loss was something we passionately wanted to do when we relaunched the business in 2018. Tommy’s the Baby Charity were a great support to us, and we want to help others who have experienced baby loss, have access to the same support too. Every time you purchase from us, we donate a small percentage of profits to Tommy’s the Baby Charity. Tommy’s fund research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provide pregnancy health information to parents. Given what we went through, this is something we wholeheartedly want to support. To learn more about Tommy’s the Baby Charity please click here.
Every purchase from Wrap it By Tina see’s 5% of profits donated towards our fundraiser. Outside the business, we also organise a local baby loss awareness event in Borehamwood, and run to raise funds!
24th of March 2019 was a momentous day for me as I ran my first ever race at the London Landmarks Half Marathon and raised a massive £2400. Couch to 13.1 miles in 30 days saw me push myself to new limits to help raise funds for Tommy’s the baby Charity and raise awareness about baby loss. I vowed never to do it again!
June 2020 had me run the Local Landmark Half Marathon in absence of the main one due to the pandemic. I was determined never to do it again!
August 1st 2021, I decided to run the London Landmarks Half Marathon again! This time I raised a massive £1270. I won’t even say I’m not doing it again as I’ve already registered for LLHM 2022! Running is extremely hard, and I don’t do it out of training. But the joy it brings to know I have helped to raised awareness and funds to help another couple smile and have hope for a baby, it’s immeasurable.
Thank you all for your continued support. Together we can help reduce baby loss figures in the UK and break down taboos related to baby loss by raising awareness.
