"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.

Patient & Public Involvement / Engagement (PPIE) in Research 

Our PPIE group usually meet a couple of times a year.  


Research helps us improve what we do and how we do it.  It is important that we plan and carry out our research together with you, so that we know we are getting it right.


If you are interested in coming along to our next meeting or are thinking about getting involved then please contact us.
