Tommy's, the baby charity

We fund research into pregnancy problems to save babies' lives

Story

Hi I'm Justin, and in August last year I became a Dad for the first time after the arrival of our beautiful baby girl Quinn.

I love being a dad, and I can only imagine that losing your baby is one of the hardest things  to go through in life. So I was surprised to learn that one in four women will lose their baby during pregnancy or child birth. 

Our wait for Quinn had a few scares and complications during which support from Tommy's was available, but for other families the complications have been much more serious.

I know that I’d like to reduce the chances of this happening to Sian and I in the future, or anyone for that matter, and that’s why this April I will be running my first (and probably last) marathon to raise money for Tommy’s.

I will be blogging about Quinn, my training and in more detail my reasons for running for Tommy's at daddydeeknee.com where you can also get in touch if you wish.

Thanks in advance for your support!
