British author, trainee integrative psychotherapist and the founder of Gateway Women, Jody Day, tells us about the often untold story behind childlessness after miscarriage.
80 percent of my pregnancies have ended in death and I felt like they were telling me those babies didn't matter.
I phoned Tommy's and I cannot remember the midwife's name who I spoke to but she was utterly, utterly amazing. Incredible.
I am extremely grateful that we had a second positive outcome, and our beautiful family was complete
Karl McPherson is taking on an incredible fundraising challenge. Cycling to five ski centres, covering over 320 miles and climbing almost the vertical height of Everest to raise money for Tommy's miscarriage research.
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.
