Team story

[p]We wanted a challenge and we got a good one, in the form of the iconic London Marathon! Luke, Kate and Elliott from Slater and Gordon Lawyers, will be running the London Marathon and not only that, we will be running for a fantastic charity, Baby Lifeline.[/p][p]Why Baby Lifeline?[/p][p]Baby Lifeline is a unique national charity supporting the care of pregnant women and newborn babies all over the UK and worldwide.[/p][p]It raises funds to purchase much needed maternity equipment and is one of the leading providers of training maternity healthcare professionals. Some specific and relevant research to improve care is also carried out.[/p][p]Recognised as one of the UK’s leading mother and newborn baby charities, it has attracted the support of leading figures from the health service who sit on the charity’s board and A-list celebrities who fulfil the roles of Patrons who strive to draw attention to this hugely important charity.[/p][p]Driven by the personal loss of three premature babies, Judy Ledger formed Baby Lifeline in 1981. Judy understands the tragedy of losing a baby and the exceptional skills and dedication shown by medical professionals often in adverse and under-resourced conditions.[/p][p]From setting out to raise funds for just one incubator for Coventry’s Neonatal Unit after losing her third baby - Stuart, in 1981, Judy has led Baby Lifeline to what it is today, an organisation which has equipped and supported specialist training for most UK maternity units and their health professionals as well as providing training internationally. [/p][p]Baby Lifeline has already raised over £12 million which has helped to purchase vital equipment for maternity and special care baby units.[/p][p]It is vital the work at Baby Lifeline continues and that education and training exists to improve the UK’s healthcare system.[/p][p]It is a sad fact that even with the advances in medical care and science today that every day, on average, 15 babies are still born or pass away within their first four weeks of life in the UK (Office of National Statistics); around 76%-80% of stillbirths and perinatal deaths investigated are preventable (RCOG, 2016; MBRRACE-2017). In addition, on average 1 mother a day (359) will also die in the UK (MBRRACE-2017).[/p][p]At Slater & Gordon we have successfully obtained compensation for many clients when stillbirths or perinatal deaths have occurred which could have been prevented.[/p][p]So, there is still a lot more work to be done!! [/p][p]If you can spare anything at all, it will directly benefit Baby Lifeline and would mean everything to us in our quest to get over the London Marathon finish line! [/p]
