We are delighted that Mothercare has launched a limited edition baby bodysuit as part of Jools Oliver’s Little Bird range in support of Tommy’s!
Mothercare has once again partnered with Tommy’s to celebrate rainbow babies 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.

The exclusive Rainbow Baby Bodysuit is available online and instore, retailing at £8 each. A donation of £1 from the sale of each bodysuit will go to Tommy’s. Sizes range from new born to 18 months. £1 from every sale of the my rainbow baby bodysuit will go straight to Tommy's to help us continue our lifesaving research.

This Sunday, 5 May, is International Day of the Midwife, a day in which we shine the spotlight on some of the special individuals who make up the fabric of Tommy's.
Owen, co-author of parenting blog 'Love amongst the stars' opens up about navigating the emotions he felt after the loss of his son Kaspar.
Here at Tommy's we are fortunate to have a number of supporters who go above and beyond to help us continue our lifesaving research. One of these such individuals is Fran and this is her story.
"I truly feel without the support of the EPU and the peace of mind given to us through the Tommy's study we would not be where we are today."
Little Anderson was born under the care of the Tommy's Early Miscarriage Research Centre at London Imperial.
Version 2 of the Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle (SBLCBv2) has been unveiled.
While Tommy’s concentrate most of our research on stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth, we know that work is needed in many other areas to make sure as many babies as possible are born alive and well.
Tommy’s are taking advantage of technology to develop new ways of making sure as many babies as possible are born healthy, from new scanning techniques to training simulators for amniocentesis.
Tommy’s understand pregnancy complications cause far more than just physical harm. We want to understand the best way to support women’s mental health both during pregnancy and following loss.
