Women around the world are less likely to miscarry or die during childbirth thanks to research led by Prof. Arri Coomaraswamy,

who has been awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the King’s Birthday Honours.

An expert in Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine from the University of Birmingham, Prof. Coomarasamy has been involved in major clinical trials that have had a significant impact on cutting the risk of early miscarriage, and reducing the likelihood of severe bleeding during childbirth by 60%.

Arri Coomarasamy is a Professor of Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine at the University of Birmingham, Consultant at Birmingham Women’s Hospital, Director of the Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research, Joint Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Women’s Health and founding trustee of Ammalife, a UK-registered charity with a global mission of reducing maternal deaths in low-income countries.

Prof.Arri Coomarasamy said of his nomination for Officer of the Order of the British Empire: “This is a recognition for the powerful work our research teams do in tackling miscarriage and childbirth-related deaths. Every two minutes, a mother dies during childbirth somewhere in the world. The impact of our research can be a matter of life and death for mothers and their children. I am delighted that maternal and child health are being celebrated.” courtesy University of Bermingham.
