Founded in 1964, "In 1972, the name was changed to “Birthright” – The National Fund for Childbirth Research” in order to reflect the national activities of the charity both in terms of fundraising and research. In April 1975 Birthright agreed to work in partnership with The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) to improve women’s health. Birthright broadened its remit to include all aspects of obstetrics and gynaecology.

"In the late eighties and early nineties, the charity was honoured to have the support of Diana, Princess of Wales, as a very active and committed Patron. And in keeping with it’s original mission to respond to important health challenges faced by women, the charity was renamed ‘Wellbeing.’...In 2007, the Prime Minister’s wife, Sarah Brown became our Patron. Her dedication to our charity has helped raise our profile as our work continues to improve the lives of millions of women affected by reproductive health problems in the UK." [1]
