Hello all

As some of you will know, the charity Tommy's - which funds medical research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provides information on having a healthy pregnancy - has supported Mumsnet's Miscarriage Care Campaign in the past, and we thought some of you might like to know that today they're launching a campaign to address the silence surrounding miscarriage, and to raise funds for a centre conducting research into issues related to miscarriage.

Tommy's say:

"Tommy's is launching a campaign to end the silence and misunderstanding around miscarriage. We polled 6,000 women who have experienced miscarriage. A shocking 80% felt like a 'failure’ after their miscarriage, and 85% said they didn't think people understood what they were going through. Tommy's wants to change that. Our campaign encourages people to share their stories on social media using the #misCOURAGE hashtag and to donate to the UK's first national miscarriage research centre, which Tommy's will be opening in April 2016.

Thanks

Thank you so much Mumsnet for supporting this campaign!

We need support on a Twitter Thunderclap today if anyone would be willing to take part. The link is here: www.thunderclap.it/projects/34426-miscarriage-is-misunderstood
