Pregnancy news, 12/12/2016
One to One Midwives are asking mums-to-be at their centre in Crewe to donate £3 for a Christmas tree bauble that reveals their baby’s gender.
All the money raised will go to Tommy's and help us fund research that means many more mums and dads who have experienced baby loss, or given birth prematurely, go on to have happy, healthy pregnancies in the future.
We love this fun and festive campaign. It’s a wonderful way to find out if you're expecting a boy or girl and makes sharing the news with others an especially merry experience.
One to One midwife Skye Meakin explains:
‘This is a fun way to reveal your baby’s gender to yourself or family and friends. You could also enclose a scan picture inside the bauble and give them as presents to reveal your pregnancy news.’
We are so grateful to One to One Midwives for fundraising for us and for coming up with such a fun and thoughtful way to raise money.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to them for all their hard work fundraising .
To find out more and purchase a bauble you can call the One to One Midwives advice centre on 01270 749120.
