Wellbeing of Women - Our Charity of the Year
Here at Bloom we are passionate about promoting health and wellbeing, it is at the heart of all we do. As Mums of daughters and with our own Mothers still very active, we are more aware than ever of the importance of research into female health issues. We want to support good causes that share our philosophy.
So, This year we are partnering with the fantastic UK charity Wellbeing of Women.
Wellbeing of Women invest in pioneering research in women's health. The projects they support help find cures and develop new tests and treatments that will save and change the lives of women, girls and babies.
Less than 2.1 % of publicly funded research is dedicated solely to reproductive health, despite the fact that one in three women in the UK will suffer from a reproductive or gynaecological health problem. There is five times more research into erectile dysfunction, which affects 19% of men, than into premenstrual syndrome, which affects 90% of women.
The research areas Wellbeing of Women focusses on are:
- Pregnancy and birth complications - Including miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth and fertility
- Gynaecological cancers - cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, vaginal cancer, vulval cancer and womb cancer
- Wellbeing issues - Including endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, menopause, incontinence and other health areas
