Your generosity transforms the lives of women, newborns and families at The Royal – and beyond.
Philanthropic support and partnerships mean we can do more for the hospital and families who rely on The Royal.
This support has enabled the Fertility & Research Centre to be established, specialised medical equipment to be funded throughout the hospital, new models of care and outreach programs developed, and has brought research to life.

Your impact on research
In 2019, five research projects were funded in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit that are helping create new models of care that will give premature babies a better chance of survival.
The first Verasonics research ultrasound was funded for Maternal Fetal Medicine through community fundraising. This equipment will help develop new predictive models that help to better understand Stillbirth and growth restriction during pregnancy.
