Ive been wearing mine and have to say that its improved my journey
Well it better than displaying the "Bare Belly Bulge" so proudly...
Reminds me of the Jimmie Carr joke.

I would rather see a pregnant lady stand than a fat lady cry.

This badge gets round that!
You can also visit your local tube station and ask for one. And if they are nice, they will give you a few for convenience.
I believe fat gentlemen should get this as well
Why has this been expired? It's still a valid freebie.

I went to London recently with my pregnant wife, must have used 10 trains in 3 days and not one person voluntarily gave up their seat (had to ask). Can a small badge have more effect than a good size "bump"?

yes because most people are too cautious to ask in case the lady is fat and not pregnant lol
pregnancy is not the same as giving up your seat for disabled or elderly person is it

True, a disabled person can't help being disabled, and an elderly person can't help being old. Being pregnant is a choice a woman chose.

Saying that, only an A-hole would refuse to give up a seat to a heavily pregnant woman.
My wife wears this badge to work in the early morning. Not one person gives up their seat. Miserable gits.
great stuff

Same here,it makes no difference for me.Last day I've been pushed out from a seat at South Kensington with my badge on display and my big bump.No manners
In fairness, you got pregnant why should people give up their seat because you been sliding round on a love handle!

I would do away with these mother and baby spaces at supermarkets, think cave women needed them?

Yeah I would also do away with maternity leave, you get 3 hours off and that is it. X)
Graham you seem to hate women?
Living in London, got this simply by asking at a tube station. My wife wears it most mornings and have to saw that it does not help on most days.

People seem to share Graham1979's views and I have seen young fit men who don't want to budge, which is a bit disgraceful, in my opinion. How about a basic sense of humanity and helping others who are more in need than you?!

I take a packed train everyday to work and stand.....I feel that I have to sit for the next 8-10 hours on a chair, and can surely stand for 40 mins of my train journey. Even when I am sitting, I give my seat up to anyone who is more in need to sit down (disabled, pregnant, ill, even drunk).
I do that partly because I think I am fortunate enough to be able to stand and there is always someone who would need that seat more than I do.

I am not saying that everyone would be in a position to do that, but giving your seat up for someone who is in need of it more than you, is not a biggie! You are only going to be standing there for short while! Is that too hard?
HUKD never ceases to amaze.

Sincerely hope all women keep their ovaries away from Graham1979's funky juice; for the love of mankind.

Thanks OP
Arrived this morning. Thanks.
Even though i am just 3 months and rather already have a bump, people on train ask me if i like to sit but i just have a max of 2 stops on train, which is mot necessary most the time. I order this badge more than one week ago and didnt receive nothing at all:( ah well i will try at the station directly..
