Announcing RainCorns Tribe: An Interactive Community

Rainbows & Unicorns is growing!

We realize that, given how Facebook operates (as in your connections on Facebook can see what you “like”), the Rainbows & Unicorns blog page might not feel like a safe space to those whose friends and family don’t know about their loss/infertility journey. So, we’ve created a new CLOSED* Facebook group called RainCorns Tribe. Our goal for this group is to promote a sense of community and support and to help foster positive discussions about the many facets of parenting after reproductive trauma—in a private, therefore safer, forum.

About RainCorns Tribe

RainCorns Tribe is a peer-led, pro-choice, science-based, secular support group for parents who’ve experienced a reproductive trauma. This includes, but is not limited to, support for people who have experienced pregnancy/baby loss, infertility, pregnancy termination, traumatic birth, pre-/postpartum depression or anxiety, and those in the LGBTQIA+ community.

Friends and allies of parents after reproductive trauma, and anyone still TTC, are welcome. All members will be vetted and must be approved by admins. Members also must agree to the guidelines set forth.

* A closed group means that all member requests have to be screened by an admin. Non-members can see who is a member, the group logo, and group description, but they CANNOT see the group’s content.
