Hello and welcome to Mummy’s Star. We’re very glad you have found out about us and look forward to working with you to help provide care and support for mums/mums-to-be in their journey ahead.

Since Mummy’s Star was set up in June 2013, we have gained a wealth of experience of working with women in this rare and traumatic situation. Consequently, we are well placed to share expertise and best practice in this area in order to better support the care of affected women throughout the UK. Mummy’s Star is a useful third sector resource available to provide information, advice and guidance to healthcare professionals caring for women diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or postnatally.

The information on this website is reviewed on an ongoing basis and will be supplemented as new information, research and statistics become known about cancer in pregnancy and the postnatal period. Likewise, as we receive more enquiries, we will add to the FAQs section in order to try and answer as many questions as possible, to save busy professionals hours of internet searching and research.

Please feel free to get in touch if you are supporting a woman or her family in this situation. Our team is friendly, professional and well-informed and available to take referrals for support, provide information and guidance or simply lend a compassionate listening ear.

Contact us at info@mummysstar.org in the first instance and we will respond asap.
