Tommy's

Charity description

Tommy's  logo
Tommy's goal is to reduce the incidence of miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth which cause so much suffering to more than a quarter of all parents across the UK.

Tommys wants to give every baby the best chance of being born healthy. Right now, in the UK, one in four women loses a baby during pregnancy or birth.

We fund medical research into the causes of premature births, stillbirths and miscarriages. We have set up three research centres in the UK, in St Thomas Hospital in London, St Marys in Manchester and the recently established centre in the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. Each centre focuses its research efforts on different issues relating to pregnancy.

We also provide research-based information about pregnancy health issues for medical professionals and parents-to-be.

This includes a dedicated telephone midwife service, a comprehensive website and free books and leaflets dedicated to promoting health in pregnancy and pre-pregnancy.

By 2030 we want to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy or birth.
