Tommy's News 25/01/2017
Mothercare has once again partnered with Tommy’s to celebrate rainbow babies with with The Little Bird Rainbow Baby Bodysuit. Rainbow babies are born following a miscarriage or still birth, and this body suit is a testament to just how special these little ones are to their mums and dads. The Little Bird Rainbow Baby Bodysuit is Jools' second collaboration with Tommy's. Her first hugely successful kidswear collection, which launched last year, was featured in British Vogue.
Jools Oliver comments;
“I’m so proud to be launching this beautiful Little Bird, my rainbow baby bodysuit. The response to the first bodysuit we launched last year was incredible and I was taken aback by some of the heartfelt stories that were shared with us. Tragically 1 in 4 women loses a baby during pregnancy or birth and when that happens it changes the lives of so many families. Tommy’s is a wonderful charity that funds much needed research into pregnancy problems and provides important pregnancy health information to parents. I am so happy we are able to work together again.”
Here at Tommy’s, we understand the impact baby loss has on parents and families. That is why we fund the Rainbow Clinic in Manchester, to provide specialist care for women who are pregnant after loss and help them on their way to a healthy pregnancy.
'Tommy’s and the Rainbow Clinic are so vital for families like us'
The Powsney's were in the care of Dr Alex Heazell at our Rainbow Clinic after their baby Joshua was stillborn in 2014. They have now welcomed their second rainbow baby, George Joshua Powsney.
