To celebrate our 25th year we have brought together a visionary group of individuals to form a giving club, Tommy’s25.
We are sincerely grateful to the members for their generous support and keen to welcome new members.
Help shape the future of pregnancy research by joining our club.
You will have the opportunity to collaborate on which projects receive priority on funding, plus the chance to visit a centre to meet the team at the heart of these pioneering projects.
As a close member of the Tommy's family we will invite you to networking events to meet co-members and you will regularly receive exclusive priority updates on Tommy’s news and the most important developments in research.
Paulo and Melinda Almeida became founding members of our new giving club Tommy’s25 after benefitting from pioneering research and care at Tommy’s Maternal & Fetal Reseach Centre in London:
'Tommy's25 is a great initiative. Tommy's does amazing work in the UK and its research is often the first or best in the world. The Almeida family has benefited immensely from this research and is delighted to support Tommy's.'

CRY explores a father’s denial after his baby daughter is born sleeping. It is great to see this project defying the taboo around baby loss and showing that dad and partners grieve too.
Blogger Jade tells us about suffering with post-natal depression after her baby was born poorly, and her struggle to admit what she was feeling.
Recent research achievements in miscarriage and stillbirth, premature birth, pre-eclampsia and general pregnancy health.
In addition to our core work on miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm birth and pre-eclampsia, Tommy’s also funds projects that research the effects of lifestyle and well-being on pregnancy and on the later life of the child.
When a baby dies after 24 weeks of gestation it is called a stillbirth. Incredibly, over 3,500 babies are stillborn every year in the UK and many of these deaths remain unexplained. Tommy’s research is dedicated to improving these shocking statistics.
Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely each year in the UK and many suffer lifelong consequences as a result. Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal death in the UK.
