When a pregnancy fails or a baby dies, it causes devastation. Giving birth to a premature baby is emotionally traumatic as well as physically, and parents who find themselves in these situations can be totally overwhelmed, and in desperate need of answers. 

Through our clinics, research centres, pregnancy information service and support line run by the team of Tommy's midwives, we are here to support parents and families who go through these experiences. 

Tommy's also provides NHS accredited, life saving pregnancy information to all parents around the UK, to ensure they have the safest and healthiest pregnancy possibly.
