What a very proud mum I am - Duchess of Cambridge wears the Baby on Board Badge

It has been a few years now but when I lost my baby I started a campaign with my MP for considerate commuters . As a result of this the London Underground set up a Baby on Board badge scheme and today in the news the Duchess of Cambridge was presented with one. I hope it raises more awareness to people on public transport and if you are pregnant say it and get a seat.

whiteandyellow if you are near to a staffed tube station I believe they can also give them out to you there

Msjayjay, I am so sorry for your loss.

I got one when I popped to London for a work trip!
Think its a fabulous idea... Its now pinned to my Boots changing bag and if I need to get a bus or a train I'll wear it even if not in London!
MsJayJay - thanks for the time and effort you've been putting in on this issue - its well worth it

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a difference you and your baby have made though - to make women's lives easier and safer. Bravo! smile
