CMV Action - Educate - Vaccinate - Eradicate
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common infection that can infect people of all ages, usually with no long-term effects. However, it is very dangerous to unborn babies and is the most common infection passed from a pregnant woman to her baby. CMV causes more problems than Down’s, Spina Bifida and Cystic Fibrosis, yet few pregnant women and professionals have heard of it.
CMV Action is a small, but dynamic, UK registered charity raising public awareness of cCMV and campaigning for better prevention measures within our health service. We are firmly committed to limiting the devastating impact of this virus for those currently affected and for future generations.
Kicks Count aim to empower mums-to-be with knowledge about their baby’s movements during pregnancy, as well as giving them confidence to speak to a midwife if they have any concerns. As a baby’s movements are a key indicator of their wellbeing, reporting a reduction in movement early can ensure that any babies found to be in distress can be delivered early. Our overall objective is to decrease the high stillbirth and neonatal death rate in the UK, currently 16 babies are stillborn or die within the first 7 days of life.
Roche Diagnostics gives you The Power of Knowing that you're using accurate information to make the right decisions today, so your patients can experience a healthier tomorrow. Roche’s broad spectrum of clinical testing supports women throughout the course of pregnancy from conception to birth. The portfolio includes tests that measure the ovarian reserve and groups of tests that fulfill national screening requirements for first trimester fetal anomalies, infectious diseases, bone health and anaemia. The latest additions to this portfolio are Harmony non-invasive prenatal testing (formerly of Ariosa Diagnostics) and the sFlt/PlGF ratio test for the diagnosis and short term prediction of pre-eclampsia.
The Practising Midwife
The Practising Midwife is the leading journal for midwives and all health professionals connected with pre-conception care, pregnancy, birth and neonatal matters.
Times ahead are exciting as we have introduced new and challenging themes focused on supporting midwives in practice and we have now launched our breath taking new website (practisingmidwife.co.uk).
We retain our characteristic qualities, with regular advancing practice, midwifery basics, evidence series and pertinent articles, but you will find us at the forefront of innovation in the areas we cover. Our readers tell us that TPM is quite simply the best journal for staying informed in an eminently readable form.

The IONA® test has a higher detection rate and lower false positive rate than existing screening tests, giving pregnant women, their families and their midwives greater confidence in the result and reducing the need for unnecessary invasive follow-up tests and the associated anxiety and stress.
