Baby Loss Awareness Week 2017

Helping couples affected by miscarriage

Researchers at Warwick Medical School are investigating ways to help couples affected by miscarriage.

Baby Loss Awareness Week is an annual event that aims to raise awareness about the issues surrounding pregnancy and baby loss in the UK and which gives bereaved parents, and their families and friends, the opportunity to unite with others across the world to commemorate their babies’ lives. This year it takes place from 9 - 15 October.

Several researchers at Warwick Medical School are working on helping couples affected by miscarriage. Last year we became a principal partner of the Tommy's Centre for Miscarriage Research, bringing together expertise from across the country to collaborate on diagnosis, trials and treatments.

Find out about some of our researchers' work below.
