Babyonboardbadge.co.uk is owned by Mothers Who Work (www.motherswhowork.co.uk) – the resource for mums who are serious about making money.
The site is the brainchild of me Joycellyn Akuffo, a mum of two wonderful children, and for one reason or another in both pregnancies found myself standing on busy trams, tubes, trains and sometimes buses because people either didn’t realise I was pregnant, or probably thought I might be, but not wanting to offend me didn’t offer me a seat.
There really isn’t anything out there that makes the message clear enough for commuters that a woman is pregnant. It can be infuriating to be heavily pregnant, maybe suffering from aches and pains and having to stand on packed buses, trains, tubes, trams etc with the threat of an elbow or some other person’s body part bumping into you when someone has chosen to sit in a priority seat and looks at you but doesn’t realise that you’re pregnant.
The badges on this website are all handmade and made in the UK.
They are 5.8cm in diameter and are big enough for commuters to see that you are pregnant, but it too big to be embarrassing to wear.
Whether you are modest or very confident with what you wear, there is something for everyone – and every colour outfit, so you can have a bit of fun with the badges. And they are cheap!
So, go on…let the world know about your good news!
