Because we need to understand the causes why our waters break early in pregnancy to help us improve and learn the best ways to care for women who endure this high risk pregnancy which leads to preterm birth and in some cases baby losses 

Our ambition

  • Learn why some babies survive and why some do not 
  • Prevent baby loss 
  • NICU/Neonatal care - learn how Nitric Oxide can benefit babies impacted by PPROM 
  • To bring our research together to gain education resources 
  • Intervention after the waters have broken 
  • Find out if PPROM can be prevented 
  • Fund more research into best practice for women who PPROM before 24 weeks of pregnancy 
  • To provide emotional support during and after PPROM no matter the outcome
