The UK’s first miscarriage research centre is being set up by Tommy’s to research why miscarriages happen

Antenatal charity Tommy’s hopes to understand more about why miscarriages happen and what can be done to prevent them by coordinating tests and treatments for parents-to-be.

Miscarriage is the biggest cause of pregnancy loss in the UK – around 250,000 couples are affected every year, but it’s also the least understood. The network will study the causes of miscarriage, if it’s likely to happen again, how it can be prevented and how to provide appropriate care to women who have gone through miscarriage.
