Tommy's, the baby charity, has teamed up with the Portland Hospital for Women and Children in London for a year-long partnership to raise funds for research into premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage.
The partnership will officially launch next month and will kick off with an initiative involving a special congratulations greeting card, designed by children's illustrator Rob Campbell.
The charity will insert the cards entitled "A dream come true
into packs given to new mothers, who have had a healthy baby, when they leave the private Portland hospital.
The charity has produced 2,500 cards to encourage families of healthy newborn babies to celebrate the occasion by making a donation to the charity.
Money raised from the donations will help Tommy's give every family the chance to have a healthy baby.
The pack, produced by the hospital, contains information including how to register your baby, a membership to Portly Panda Children's Club, together with a letter of congratulations, which from September, will mention the hospital's support of Tommy's.
