We provide information and support to empower parents during pregnancy
We provide evidence based, expert and user led, accessible pregnancy information to support expectant parents in understanding what they can do to support a safe and healthy pregnancy.
Pregnancy is a huge learning curve for women. Suddenly, their behaviour, diet and lifestyle will affect the health of another person - their baby. And not just as they grow in the womb, but potentially through childhood and beyond. Empowering women by giving them the information they need during pregnancy can make pregnancy safer and a whole new generation healthier.
Our pregnancy information service:
- is led by a team of Tommy's midwives
- is guided by our National Pregnancy Information Service Advisory Board, a group of senior representatives from midwifery and obstetrics that includes representatives from RCOG, RCM, NHS and Department of Health.
- includes a comprehensive website, a midwife-led Facebook page and an app for parents of premature babies
- is user-led and evidence-based
- follows a rigorous process that was accredited by the (now closed down) NHS England Information Standard Scheme.

We fund research that saves lives
We fund four maternal and fetal research centres in the UK:
- St Thomas' in London focuses on preterm birth and late miscarriage
- St Mary’s in Manchester focuses on stillbirth and the placenta
- Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh focuses on obesity and preterm birth
- The University of Birmingham, The University of Warwick, and Imperial College London will host The Tommy's National Centre for Miscarriage Research
Each of our research centres has clinics where we see women who are at higher risk of pregnancy problems, some of whom are desperate for help after having repeated problems.
Together with our teams of scientists and clinicians, they are helping us provide the evidence that will make antenatal care better for all.
