The news of a pregnancy or a recent birth is an exciting time for all prospective and existing parents. It can, however, be cruelly interrupted by the news of a cancer diagnosis and the worry that this brings to both you and your wider family.
Mummy’s Star has been set up specifically to offer support if you find yourself in this situation and we hope that by providing comprehensive information and links in this section, it will help you to get the support you need, access services that are available to you but most importantly know that you are not alone when you are going through this.
The information contained here is reviewed on an ongoing basis and will also be added to as new information becomes known about cancer in pregnancy. Likewise, as we receive more enquiries, we will add to the FAQs section in order to be able to try and answer as many of your questions in one place as possible.
Please contact us here and we can discuss more specifically how we can support you and your family.

We were delighted to receive some goodies to give away to our mums as part of the Beauty Despite Cancer’s amazing 10,000 gift giveaway.

Yoga with Catherine
In November 2014, Catherine’s middle sister Philippa was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma whilst pregnant with her third child Grace. Grace was born prematurely for Philippa to begin her treatment. Today, both Philippa and Grace are thriving. At a time of such darkness and difficultly within her family’s personal life, Catherine began her own practice of restorative yoga which she now describes as her 'Saving Grace'.
Catherine is offering free access to her online courses to all our Mums. If you are a Mum or family member and would like to benefit from her generous offer, please get in touch with your Information and Support Worker or drop us an email email@example.com
