  • Tommy's research the causes of baby loss 

    We believe research can save babies’ lives and improve care and support for families at every stage of the pregnancy journey. Our mission is to make the UK the safest place to give birth, halving the number of babies who die in pregnancy and birth by 2030. In the UK, it is estimated that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss during pregnancy or birth and 60,000 babies are born prematurely each year. We research causes and treatments so we can make pregnancy and birth safer for all.

    Tommy’s was founded in 1992 when two obstetricians at St Thomas’ Hospital in London - Dr Ian Fergusson and Dr Anthony Kenney - couldn't and wouldn't accept the lack of answers surrounding premature birth any longer. Together with one of their patients, Lucy Nelson, they decided to start a campaign raising money for pregnancy research projects. The campaign grew into Tommy’s charity.
