Each year, we use the charitable funds raised through events, donations and activities to support medical research projects. The research has a neonatal focus to improve the wellbeing of babies and their families in Coventry and Warwickshire.

The role of Phospholipase C-like 1 in maintenance of uterine quiescence in human pregnancy

This 3 or 4-year detailed study began in April 2015 and will aid the development of a new clinical test to predict who is likely to go into labour early, as well as discovering information to develop new drugs to prevent premature labour and delivery

Community intervention to support parents with premature babies

This study supported parents to recognise they're the experts with their own babies and promoted parents' confidence in understanding and enjoying their babies

Birth problems in obese pregnant women

Obese women have long labour, large babies or go overdue more frequently than women who are not obese. This means obese mothers and their babies are at increased risk of traumatic deliveries by forceps or caesarean section. Scientists at the University of Warwick researched the underlying factors

Alleviating infant pain

This study helps us to understand better how babies show that they are in pain. The study was conducted at the neonatal unit, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, between March 2009 and March 2011

Nursing attitudes to quiet time

A comparative study in 2006 to determine nursing staff attitudes towards daily allocation of quiet time on the neonatal intensive care unit before and after implementation
