Nearly 4 million babies are born in the U.S. every year, and each one needs us. The money you raise will be a lifeline for moms and babies near you and across the country. Join more than 1,200 people at the Erie walk in support of moms at every stage from preconception to post-delivery with research, programs and education—and it all comes together with a celebration at March for Babies on Sunday, April 29, 2018!

The Palm Family

Ryan and Sarah Palm know that even if you do everything right, you can still have a premature birth. In 2012, Madison Grace Palm was born at just 31 weeks and 4 days of pregnancy. She weighed 2 pounds, 14 ounces and spent 28 days in the NICU. We don’t always know what causes premature birth but we do know that certain risk factors can increase your chances for premature birth such as having a premature baby in the past. The Palm Family experienced this risk factor in 2014 when their son, Andrew James Palm, was born early at 31 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy. He weighed 4 pounds, 1 ounce and spent 21 days in the NICU. Today Madison and Andrew are thriving. The Palm family knows the significant role that March of Dimes research played in helping their children get this far. They encourage you to raise as much as you are able to continue to help families with premature babies.
