Our impact

We are a small charity and our achievements outweigh our size. We prevent heartbreak and save babies by carrying out research and finding treatments to prevent baby loss and premature birth.

We all cried when she was born, and it was like we were putting demons to rest. Edie’s arrival gave us our first real sense of joy and peace since we’d lost our son Joshua. I feel emotional just thinking about everything Tommy's did for us - their kindness and total understanding of what we’d suffered and how we felt. Adam and Hayley Pownsey, who, after a tragic stillbirth, gave birth to a healthy baby girl under the care of the Tommy's Rainbow Clinic

What we're aiming for at Tommy's

  • Clinicians better able to predict early who is at risk of baby loss or premature birth.
  • New treatments to reduce these risks.
  • Ability to make successful new treatments and tests available to all.
  • Empowered and supported parents knowing what they can do to protect their babies before and during pregnancy.
