This is our story....

Little Heartbeats Little Heartbeats Website helps women whose waters have broken early in pregnancy.

Myself, Ciara the founder and recently been awarded as a Volunteer Coronation Champion by the Kind and Queen consort. I set the organisation up after losing my first-born baby Sinead due to complications of PPROM

I work tirelessly to help women with this devastating pregnancy complication.

I run the website and several Facebook groups for women who are experiencing PPROM/after loss/babies in NICU and I send out care packages to women going through PPROM. Other recent work I have been involved with includes:

• Wellbeing of Women and Little Heartbeats joint funded UKOSS study on PPROM before 23/40 complete and awaiting publication
• Fundraiser and lay summary for study by Professor Anna David and group assessing potential of bioengineering for membrane resealing
• Paper on psychological impact of PPROM accepted for publication
• RCOG 24/40+ PPROM guidelines
• BJOG study on information available to women searching online about PPROM
• 2017-2019: Reinstated RCOG guidelines and patient leaflets

Funds will be used as follows

Goals and aims;-

  • We need funds to pay our website costs so there is enough funding to continue to run
  • Funds needed to ensure we can carry on sending PPROM information care packs in which the contents are all brought via various suppliers
  • To ensure enough funding to pay for postage costs
  • Invest in a course to do Hypnobirthing to be able to offer more support to women threatening preterm birth
  • To invest more into the UKOSS study and be equal funders with Wellbeing of Women at least £2000 towards the Ukoss study
  • To invest more into the resealing of the membranes project (donate via just giving page for this)
  • To invest in raising awareness of PPROM in pregnancy
  • Invest in a blue tick on Twitter to be able to be seen to be able to raise more awareness
  • To run adverts on social media because awareness saves babies lives

If we gain enough funds we like to cover the costs of :-
  • Make a documentary of our work
  • Editing costs to make a short film of interviews with our mums
  • A wish and this may never happen but it would be a dream to have enough funds to do a Tour of the World to meet and film the women and the families we have helped to have them contribute to our documentary it be amazing to meet the families we have helped online
  • To be able to afford to be at preterm birth Conference's presenting our work
  • Travel and accommodation for presenting our work in parliament as we are awaiting a new date for this to happen
  • To secure charity status – pay a specialist to help complete the final process (we have found a company to help adjust our paper work
