Important Update

Our March for Babies celebration is still on, but it looks a little different! We are rapidly preparing for a new, virtualized event that will be fun and engaging for everyone.

ABOUT MARCH FOR BABIES

We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one.
- Premature birth is the largest contributor to infant death in the United States and globally.
- In this country, 1 in 10 babies is born prematurely each year.
- Pregnancy-related death has more than doubled over the past 25 years.
We support moms through every stage of the pregnancy journey, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan.
We’re empowering families with programs, knowledge and tools. By uniting communities, we’re building a brighter future for us all.
The March for Babies community bands together to fight for the health of all moms and babies.
When you March for Babies, you make a statement about the world you want to live in—one in which healthy moms and strong babies are a priority for us all.March for Babies is a day for everyone.
At March for Babies we:
- Hope for the day when all moms and babies are healthy and every step you take makes a difference.
- Remember those babies we lost and honor them with special tributes throughout the day.
- Celebrate with fun activities for the whole family and ours, including NICU graduates, babies in your community and across the country.
Join 5,000 champions for babies at the California State Capitol in Sacramento and make a difference in the lives of moms and babies.

The Atayas

After an otherwise healthy pregnancy, at 37 weeks Nadera noticed their baby girl wasn’t kicking or moving so they went to get checked out. After an ultra sound, the doctor came in a said those dreaded words, “I’m sorry, we cannot find a heartbeat”. Mya would have been 9 this year, in the midst of their grief the family decided to be a part of the March for Babies walk in Sacramento. It was not just a way to honor their daughter but also a way to give back. This year marks the 8th walk that Mya’s family will participate to help further the mission and work of March of Dimes.
