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. This change in format aligns with the newly released CDC guidance for large events, to help ensure the safety and health of our participants. More details on our new format to come soon!

 
 
 
 
ABOUT MARCH FOR BABIES

By participating in March for Babies, you’re lifting up communities for health equity, opening the door for all moms to have access to care and protecting the health of families by pushing for their rights. It’s no small feat—it’s a mother of a movement!
Start or join an existing team today, create an online fundraising page and let everyone know that you’re helping to make America a more equitable place and ensure that every mom and baby is healthy.

 

Want to learn more about this years campaign? Join us for a kick-off call on Thursday, February 16th from 12-1 pm via Zoom. We will go over goals for the year, meet an animal from the zoo, and hear from the 2023 ambassador family. You won't want to miss it! Register for the call today.

We encourage everyone to register online for the event so you can get the most up-to-date information, but understand if children are not registered (but we absolutely want to see them!) Admission to the zoo is included with your participation in March for Babies (if you have an annual membership, please show that at the gate when you arrive).

Mighty Mae

 

 

Edmonds Family

Mae was born via emergency c-section at just 25 weeks and 3 days gestational age. Her 3.5 month early arrival was due to a sudden onset of severe pre-eclampsia, a wintery weekend surprise in an otherwise uneventful pregnancy. After a 127 day stay in the NICU, almost 4 months of breathing support, chronic lung disease of prematurity, a blood transfusion, a dip into and then back out of stage 3 retinopathy, and more medical care than most people receive in their lifetime, Mae came home with us on a beautiful summer day. We’re happy to share that at two, Mae is healthy and thriving, and continues to receive the most amazing care from her medical specialists, friends, family, and our community. We were lucky. We brought Mae home. We had access to OBs, neonatologists, nurses, specialists, and wraparound care that gave us the best possible chance of a successful outcome. We also had the support of families, friends, our workplace, and our community. But this experience opened our eyes to the risk that pregnancy poses to mothers and babies. With preterm birth and maternal death rates continuing to rise, we’re committed to the work that March of Dimes supports so that every family gets the best possible start. marchforbabies.org/team/mightymae
