Proud to be a Foundation Donor to Borne, a medical research charity working to identify the causes of premature birth.
Premature babies face many challenging issues from the moment they are born, and their lives are often complicated by long-term disability. Yet, too often, there are no answers to why babies are born too soon. Borne brings scientists and doctors together to advance our understanding of pregnancy, and to identify what causes premature birth so that we can improve outcomes. They are assembling a world-class, cross-disciplinary team with the vision and expertise to strive for the breakthroughs that are needed to prevent premature birth.
Based at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Borne was founded in 2013 by Professor Mark Johnson as a research appeal and became an independent medical research charity in 2016. Today they are making ground-breaking discovering which are transforming the way we think about pregnancy and labour:
- Trialling the first new treatment for the prevention of preterm labour in over 50 years.
- Embracing Big Science to understand the causes of prematurity through a long-ranging discovery science study of 2,000 women who are pregnant for the first time.

Parent’s Guide to Cord Blood Foundation
The primary mission of the Parent’s Guide to Cord Blood is to educate parents with accurate and balanced information about cord blood medical therapies and cord blood storage options. This web site explains the motivations for banking umbilical cord blood, and the difference between donating cord blood to a public bank versus paying privately for family storage.
The second mission of the Parent’s Guide to Cord Blood is to analyze new developments in medical research or public policy which could expand the use of cord blood.
The Parent’s Guide to Cord Blood started out as a website in 1998. It was intended as an informal public service project in memory of Shai, the daughter of the founder Dr. Frances Verter. In 2007 a Board of Directors was recruited, and the Parent’s Guide to Cord Blood incorporated as a non-profit foundation. We have received tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the USA Internal Revenue Code. All donations to support the foundation are eligible for a tax deduction on United States tax returns.
