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.

Deborah is 37 and lives in Borehamwood with her caring and supportive husband Ben. Their baby Yaeli was sadly stillborn at 40 weeks + 1 day after Deborah noticed reduced movements.
Support from a charity like Tommy’s would have made the world of difference when I lost my babies all those years ago
Eileen from North Wales married the love of her life, Arthur, on Boxing Day 1956. They were both very excited when she fell pregnant soon after. Sadly, their first daughter Anne-Marie was born prematurely and died soon after birth. Eileen also experienced a late miscarriage and 2 early miscarriages in between 3 successful pregnancies. This is Eileen and Arthur’s story.
Tor Cook has struggled with fertility issues and sadly experienced 4 losses. She is currently pregnant in the midst of a global pandemic.
A team from JMW solicitors recently took on the three peaks challenge in support of Tommy's.
Following evaluation of the first version of the care bundle to reduce stillbirths, the second version of the Saving Babies' Lives Care Bundle (SBLCBv2) has been unveiled.
We concentrate most of our research on reducing stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth, but we know that work is needed in many other areas to make sure as many babies as possible are born healthy.
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.
