"Applying Personalised Medicine to Preterm Birth" 

About Us

Thanks to the generosity and support of Lord and Lady Harris of Peckham we were awarded a Harris Research Grant in November 2014.  The grant is for a period of five years and funds the Harris-Wellbeing Preterm Birth Centre, hosted by the University of Liverpool and Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust at the Liverpool Women's Hospital.


The Centre is home to a research programme aimed at improving understanding of what causes preterm birth and what can be done to prevent it.

Arabin pessary training video

Our team has developed a video to help clinicians insert, remove and scan with the Arabin cervical pessary.


We have over six years experience with this method of preterm birth prevention treament and we hope to be able to share this with other clinicians.
