Around 60,000 babies are born too soon every year in the UK

When Jo was admitted to hospital for emergency surgery 29 weeks into her pregnancy, nobody knew what the outcome would be for mother or baby. Thankfully, Jo and husband Will are now the proud parents of Samuel, who survived being born at just 30 weeks.

Samuel was born by caesarean section, with three surgeons present. “He weighed just 3lbs 6oz, and was not much bigger than my hand,” Jo says.

Around 60,000 babies are born too soon every year in the UK.

Action is funding research to tackle premature birth.

Run for a reason and help save the lives of babies like Samuel who are born too soon.
