Tommy's funds maternal and fetal research in four centres across the UK. We specialise in the following topics:
- all pregnancy health issues, including lifestyle issues
- premature birth
We have clinicians and researchers who can provide expert commentary on all the areas above. We also have access to women who are happy to share their experiences of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.
For news from Tommy’s, interviews, case studies and expert comment on pregnancy health and pregnancy research, please contact the Tommy’s press office - telephone 0207 398 3436 or email [email protected]
Following evaluation of the first version of the care bundle to reduce stillbirths, the second version of the Saving Babies' Lives Care Bundle (SBLCBv2) has been unveiled.
While Tommy’s concentrate most of our research on stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth, we know that work is needed in many other areas to make sure as many babies as possible are born alive and well.
Tommy’s are taking advantage of technology to develop new ways of making sure as many babies as possible are born healthy, from new scanning techniques to training simulators for amniocentesis.
Tommy’s understand pregnancy complications cause far more than just physical harm. We want to understand the best way to support women’s mental health both during pregnancy and following loss.
