Who am I?

So this is the part where I explain who I am and what my new blog is about.

My name is Rachel. I met Adam, my soul-mate (clichéd I know, but 100% true) in 2005 and we married three years later.


Adam and I


We have three boys; Ewan, Dylan and Jude. Ewan is our Angel. He was stillborn in January 2011. Dylan was born a year later in 2012 and Jude in 2015. They are our Rainbow babies. Our family is complete with our two cats Rocky and Rudi, often more trouble than everyone else put together.

I want to blog about a variety of things:

  • My wonderful family
  • Our experience of stillbirth, how it changed our lives and the support we received
  • The beautiful county of Lancashire where we live
  • Our jaunts out and about, up and down the country
  • Juggling a demanding job and being a mum
  • My good intentions to keep fit and active and eat healthily (!)

I hope you enjoy my page

  1. Continue the nice work ethic.

  2. Hi Rachel,

    I came across your blog through twitter.

    It is so lovely to see you have 2 beautiful rainbows, it gives me comfort that one day we too will bring a rainbow home. We lost our daughter Milly last October, the PM was inconclusive. This is the hardest journey ever and no-one outside of this experience can even begin to imagine how tough it is.

    • Hi Kat
      Thank you for your comment. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter Milly. It is indeed a tough journey. We received wonderful care from our hospital with our rainbow pregnancies and I hope that if you become pregnant again, you will receive the same care and attention.

  3. Looking forward to reading your blog, which I also found through Twitter. I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of Ewan. I also have an angel baby and a rainbow and have recently started a blog where I want to talk about losing my baby, Grace, too. I think it really helps others to share our experiences so those going through baby loss know that they’re not alone x

    • Hi, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope that you (like me) find writing about Grace is a cathartic experience. It definitely needs to get out there more. I read through your blog post about NICU. It sounds as though you had some positives despite it being such an awful time. And I am glad you had good care. I could not fault the midwives at all. x
