This Christmas we’re asking for your help to support our vital research to find new treatments to prevent premature birth, miscarriage and stillbirth.

  • In the UK 1 in 4 pregnancies still end in the loss of the baby
  • 15 babies are stillborn every day or die within a month of birth
  • 60,000 babies are born prematurely each year

We want to change this to help mothers like Francesca. Francesca suffered multiple miscarriages and a tragic stillbirth and thought her dream of having a family was over. She was treated by Dr Emily Cornish and Dr David Williams who Wellbeing of Women are funding to research pregnancy complications. Francesca now has two beautiful children – read her full story.
