About NMH Foundation

More than 8,000 babies are born at the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street every year. That’s a new baby every hour, 365 days of the year. 

The NMH Foundation exists to raise vital funds for the National Maternity Hospital, with a focus on advancing maternal and neonatal health, through funding research, innovation and excellence in care.

The foundation has three core pillars of work, engaging communities and corporate partners to help babies:

  1. Arrive – by funding cutting edge research and innovation that will advance maternal and foetal care so that every baby arrives safely.  
  2. Survive – by funding vital equipment, research and practice supporting premature babies, neonatal and urgent care (NICU) improving outcomes for babies born too soon.  
  3. Thrive – by understanding the causes of premature birth, improving care and support for women with complicated pregnancies, and supporting excellence in early care, improving quality of life and life chances for premature and very sick babies.
