During the COVID-19 pandemic our medical system is being tested as never before. Under normal circumstances, two babies die every hour in the U.S. And about every 12 hours a woman dies as a result of complications from pregnancy. There has never been a more important time for all of us to step up.

It's not fine that the U.S. is among the most dangerous developed nations in which to give birth.
After five years our family still feels the effects of prematurity daily. Thanks to help from March of Dimes, Sara survived her four-month NICU stay and is now a happy preschooler. But our job is not over. We continue to fundraise in order to bring healthy starts to moms and babies everywhere.
After 80 days in the NICU and 2 weeks before her due date, Reign came home! She has some lung and heart complications but she’s REIGNING over them all. I’m still fighting hypertension as well as pre-existing issues related to Lupus. But we couldn’t more grateful to have our baby and watch her defy the odds!
Team Nia stands with March of Dimes because they not only advocate for preemies, but for all babies, including those with rare genetic conditions like Nia. No mom should endure the pregnancy I had. We share our story to raise awareness for complex medical needs for babies, and to turn advocacy into quality health care and positive births for moms.
