Tommy’s exists to save babies' lives. 1 in 4 families lose a baby in pregnancy. It’s shockingly common, and the consequences for families can be devastating. Tommy’s exists to prevent this.
We fund research into the causes and prevention of pregnancy complications that lead to miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. We also provide pregnancy health information for parents-to-be.
2,127 babies are born
This is unacceptable.
We exist because there is a desperate need for funding into maternal and fetal research. When a parent is told their baby has died in pregnancy or birth, or their baby is born too soon, they are often also told that the medical teams do not know why it happened. This is because the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth are not yet understood
‘I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to the whole team for all the support leading up to the event and on the day itself. I cannot express how impressed and grateful I am to Tommy’s for making my first half marathon such an enjoyable experience! Everyone was so positive and enthusiastic what a wonderful charity you are!’ Verity Smith, Tommy’s runner at the RPFHM 2016
