What does wellbeing mean to you? For the inspiring scientists, researchers and doctors at Wellbeing of Women it can mean IVF, a fetal scan, or even life-changing supplements in pregnancy. FabLittleBag's favourite charity is dedicated to funding medical research that has proved essential for women's health issues at every stage of their lives. Who knew that so many of the wonderful benefits for women's health originated from this organisation's ground-breaking work?
- They discovered the importance of taking folic acid in pregnancy with their very first grant. Now nearly every pregnant mum takes this supplement
- They funded research that found the link between the HPV virus and cervical cancer. Now nearly every school girl is vaccinated to prevent this
- They pioneered Cyberknife - targeted radiotherapy - to treat gynaecological cancers
- They created the Baby Bio Bank, containing tissue samples from 7,000 families who have suffered pregnancy complications, to enable worldwide research into miscarriage
