Each year, around 61,000 babies in the UK are born preterm and sadly more than 1,000 babies die as a result of being born too soon. And for those that do survive being born too soon, they have an increased risk of cerebral palsy, visual impairment, hearing loss and learning difficulties.
Action Medical Research want to help stop premature birth. We are funding a potentially ground-breaking research project which hopes to delay early labour, but we urgently need your help to raise the final £15,000 to fund this vital project. This is a priority area for research as premature birth is the biggest killer of babies in the UK.
100% of your gift will go to fund research into delaying early labour.
