New tests and technologies research

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.

Technology has done many wonderful things for pregnancy: now you can find out your baby’s sex, listen to their heartbeat, and even watch them in real time! Tommy’s understand the power of new technology in making pregnancy safer. We fund research into new tests, technologies, and ways of using data to find out which women are at risk of complications, and give them the help they need. This ranges from using MRI to look at how well the placenta is working, to developing a cheap, simple saliva test to see how at risk women are of premature birth.
