We are the largest charity funding research into the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. We also provide information for parents-to-be to help them have a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Parents who suffer from miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth may have heard one or more of the following common phrases:
‘It’s one of those things’ ‘It’s nature’s way’ ‘you’ve just been unlucky’ Would this be an acceptable thing to say to someone who has cancer or Alzheimer’s? We think not – so why do we say these things in pregnancy?
We are supported by people who refuse to accept that a baby's death is just 'one of those things'. The people who support us want to do something about the lack of research and information around pregnancy issues. Like us, they believe every parent has the right to a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Our target is to halve the number of babies that die during pregnancy or birth by 2030"
