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.
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
The IONA® test is an advanced non-invasive prenatal screening test that helps midwives and other maternity healthcare professionals offer pregnant women peace of mind. The pioneering IONA® test estimates the risk of a fetus having Down’s syndrome or other serious genetic diseases and is developed by Premaitha Health, the leading UK based provider of NIPT. 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.
Be Dog Smart is our latest campaign helping families understand more about how to behave around dogs in order to keep themselves safe. We deliver FREE antenatal workshops within the community on how to prepare your dog for your new arrival as well as teaching children how to be safe around dogs. We also provide information and literature to health care professionals free of charge so you can distribute within your communities, as dog safety is important to everyone. Come and see us at the exhibition to find out more information about our education programme.
A baby’s skin is much more delicate than your own, so it should be cleaned with only the gentlest and purest elements possible. Made with just two ingredients, 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract, WaterWipes are as pure as cotton wool and water but in the convenience of a wipe.
WaterWipes have been carefully designed to be gentle on babies’ sensitive skin. They are the only wipes that contain absolutely no chemicals, just 99.9% water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract – a natural skin conditioner.
They don’t irritate the skin; instead, they may help avoid nappy rash and other skin conditions. WaterWipes are the only baby wipe to ever be approved by Allergy UK.
Because of this, 97% of midwives believe that WaterWipes are suitable to be used on the skin of newborn babies.*
WaterWipes are the only baby wipe approved by Allergy UK and awarded the National Eczema Association of America’s Seal of Acceptance.

Naitbabies are a registered Charity in England & Wales run by families who have the genetic disorder "Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia – NAIT " (also known as FNAIT or FMAIT). NAIT may cause unborn/newborn babies to bleed into their brain (ICH) and/or other major organs due to the maternal immune response against baby’s blood platelet antigens and may result in death or lifelong disabilities.
NAIT is currently not routinely screened for in pregnancy although 1 in 1000 live births are suspected to be affected.
Naitbabies provide support, advocacy and practical assistance to families around the world affected by NAIT.
