BMFMS is committed to supporting clinical and translational research, which it recognises as being a core component to providing excellence in clinical care and improving the outcomes of mothers and their unborn babies.

We are particularly interested in supporting young researchers in developing their research skills which could lead to better understanding of complex pregnancies and enable us to provide individualise care.

We have committed to a number of research bursaries (some in collaboration with other organisations) over the years and have supported many RCOG based Clinical Studies Groups from their inception. We also support many prizes arising from our annual conference.
