Mummy’s Star

About

Every day, in the UK, two pregnant women are diagnosed with cancer and Mummy’s Star is here to support them from diagnosis through pregnancy, birth, loss and beyond.

Mummy’s Star supports women who receive a cancer diagnosis during pregnancy and up to twelve months after the birth of their baby. Our aim is to reduce women’s anxiety and feelings of isolation, enable them to make informed choices about their treatment and pregnancy, and raise awareness about the financial, logistical, and psychological challenges they may face.

Last year, Mummy’s Star supported 462 women through one-to-one support, our online forums for mums to connect with women going through similar experiences, our monthly Ask The Expert sessions (covering topics about specific concerns such as Menopause, talking to children about cancer, grief, trauma, and skincare after treatment), signposting to additional support they may benefit from and supporting partners and extended family when a woman sadly dies.
