On Saturday 15th April 2010 Phil and I tragically lost our first born baby, Sinead.
One of the hardest aspects of losing Sinead is that there is no medical intervention although on the very day our daughter lay dead, one consultant took the please to tell us there was a emergency stitch, and asked me why this was not inserted,

As you see on our Daily Mail link above,
UCLH have a amazing research project which plans to develop a way to heal the amniotic membranes after they rupture.
We want you to support us, for all babies born premature, and for all babies born too soon due to PPROM which stands for Preterm Prelabour (premature) Rupture of Membranes.
- We need over £30k to get them to the full amount needed for this amazing project. If you can be part of the team to get us here please join our team, each penny will be added to this.
- Six out of 100 babies in the UK are born prematurely, before the 37 week of pregnancy. Babies may be born early because a women goes into labour spontaneously. But sometimes babies need to be born early because they are having problems in the womb, such as poor growth for example. Improvements in the care of newborns mean that most premature babies survive and grow up normally despite being born so early. However some babies have long term health problems as a result of being born premature.
- Our understanding of premature birth is limited and that is why more research is vital. We research why some women go into labour early by studying the role of infection, the response to infection and the natural antibiotics in the vagina. We are developing therapies that could reduce a woman’s risk of going into premature labour. We are testing out new treatments to help babies grow in the womb.
- Your donation will help to support our current research programme, which is:
- Stem membrane patch project
- Developing tests to improve prediction of premature births (£50 per sample)
- Analysing the levels of bacteria in urine (£75 per sample)
- Examining immune blood cells in women who have their baby premature (£150 per sample)
- Developing new drug and stem cell treatments that could heal the amniotic membrane when it ruptures early (£200 per sample)
- Testing the response of the amniotic membrane to repetitive stretching to find out why they rupture early in some women (£500 per sample)
- Testing new drugs to help small babies grow better in the womb (£1000 per experiment)
Each of these studies involves carrying out tests on 50 to 100 women.
