I have been an ambasador and supporter for Tommy’s for 8 years.

 

Tommy’s wants to give every baby the best chance of being born healthy. Right now, in the UK, one in four parents lose their baby during pregnancy or birth. A quarter of couples trying for a baby are left devastated by stillbirth, miscarriage or premature delivery. Tommy’s fund medical research into the causes of premature births, stillbirths and miscarriage. Tommy’s aim is to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy or at birth by 2030. I get to meet the most wonderful people, families and babies, and all of the lovely supporters of Tommy’s. Every year we have a superb day, great food and hear all of the moving stories of the families.

Wonderful Katy Hill, who hosted the Awards and me.

 

This year I presented The Healthcare Hero Award to a health professional who has given exceptional care to pregnant women, something which Tommy’s is very passionate about. Dr Rajasri set up a specialist clinic at the Royal Cornwall Hospital for women with high-risk pregnancies in 2010. She was nominated by former patient Emma Sansbury who feels forever grateful to Dr Rajasri for safely bringing her daughter into the world following a very tough pregnancy. There were lots of other incredible Awards on the day.

Tommy’s also provide information on having a healthy pregnancy. Talk to a pregnancy line midwife on 0800 0147 800.

Looking forward to next year.

    Great blog Nancy! It was a pleasure to meet you and the other Tommy’s Ambassadors who hosted and presented the awards. I am lucky enough to have benefited from the exceptional care provided by Dr Rajasri which gave my beautiful daughter a fighting chance at life. Some wonderful and inspiring people at the event x
