Story

Your donation will help save babies like Noah and will be matched by doctors from the British Maternal & Fetal Medicine Society.

Noah was born early having already survived Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) and spent time in intensive care

Noahs Mum Kim had given birth to twins, but sadly one of them had died in the womb. So as Noah was taken to intensive care, Isaac was taken to the morgue.


Noahs mum told us shell never forget the sights and sounds from NICU and the paralysing fear of losing her surviving baby too, breaking down every day next to his incubator.


Noah endured 10 weeks in NICU attached to wires and breathing equipment and undergoing three blood transfusions and three treatments for sepsis. Finally he came home on oxygen in time for Christmas!

Sadly there are many more families like Noahs. Twin pregnancies are still more than one and a half times more likely to end in a stillbirth and more than three times more likely to end with a neonatal death than singleton babies. So while you are reading this, other families will be grieving for a lost baby or babies, and preemies, like Noah, will be fighting to survive in intensive care

Medical Research is the key to preventing prematurity, discovering better treatments for conditions such as TTTS and saving babies lives. Tambas latest fundraising appeal, Research Rocks! will enable more research to happen.

Noahs mum told us that I felt so strongly about research I ran the Cardiff Half Marathon to help fund it. I was pleased to raise £880 to help pay for research in the hope of helping other families, to spared them the pain we went through. We want all babies to make it home.


We hope you think research really rocks too and want more multiple birth babies to survive. Your support will make this possible. Thank you, you rock!
