We’re so pleased to launch our charity partnership with Tommy’s, an amazing organisation, not only carrying out ground-breaking research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth but also providing critical support to parents and families affected.

Now, parents using bubble to book their babysitters are able to add a “Tip for Tommy’s” when paying for their sit, and whenever they do, we’ll be donating our £3.50 booking fee to the charity as well.

Tommy’s operates four research centres across the UK investigating the causes and treatments for miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. The centres also host clinics where pregnant women at risk can be treated with specialist antenatal care. One in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and Tommy’s aim is to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy and birth by 2030. It’s a hugely important, ambitious goal that we’re so proud to get behind.

Tommy’s were introduced to us by one of our investors, Marina Fogle, and it didn’t take long for us to be blown away by the unbelievable work they do, and the positive impact they’re having on the parents and families they support.

Our product focus might be babysitting, but we started the business simply as parents trying to help other mums and dads like us, and the opportunity to partner with Tommy’s is one we feel really lucky to have.
