Wellbeing of Women is a unique health charity, investing in the future of women and their babies by funding pioneering medical research to improve diagnosis, develop better treatments, and find cures for reproductive health issues. We want to bring forward the day when women are free from the heartbreak of recurrent miscarriage and stillbirth, the devastation of cervical cancer and the agony of conditions such as endometriosis.

Over the past 50 years, Wellbeing has helped to bring about many of the breakthroughs in this area of women’s health research. We’ve increased the survival rates of premature babies, introduced fetal scanning in pregnancy, discovered the importance of folic acid in pregnancy, and provided the building the building blocks for the development of the vaccine against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).

Investment in world class research is the only way to improve these figures. It is only through funding the brightest stars in obstetrics and gynaecology that we have a chance of finding the answers to the questions that we urgently need.

Why your support is so vital:

Baby's Fingers     Baby's Feet

The UK’s statistics around reproductive health are shocking. 1 in 2 women will suffer from some kind of reproductive or gynaecological health problem at some point in their lives. 17 babies still die each day due to birth complications, and 145 women die of gynaecological cancer each week.

The money raised by Vitality Bath Half Marathon runners will allow Wellbeing of Women to fund further pioneering medical research to improve diagnosis, develop better treatments, and find cures for reproductive health issues. Wellbeing does this by funding Research Grants, Research Training Fellowships and Entry Level Scholarships, which work to improve diagnosis, develop better treatments, and find cures for reproductive health issues including:

–  Gynaecological Cancers – including ovarian cancer and womb cancer
–  Pregnancy and Birth – including pre-term birth, miscarriage and fertility
–  Silent Issues – including endometriosis, menopause, incontinence, menstrual disorders and incontinence

All Wellbeing of Women runners in the 2017 Vitality Bath Half Marathon will receive:
–  A Wellbeing of Women running vest/t-shirt
–  Support from a dedicated team
–  A fundraising and sponsorship pack
