ABOUT MARCH FOR BABIES

JOIN US TO MARCH FOR SOMETHING BIG!

Our country is facing an urgent maternal and infant health crisis. The U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for women and babies of color. By joining our March of Dimes community, you can help fund the research, programs, support and advocacy needed to turn this crisis around and improve mom and baby health. Together we need to UNITE, CONNECT, HONOR and CARE for families now.

March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement™ is your chance to step up to make a real difference in your community now and for generations to come.

By joining us in this movement:

  • YOU’RE UNITING for health equity, opening the door for all moms to have access to care and protecting the health of families by advocating for their rights.
  • YOU’RE CONNECTING through year-round through customized challenges and team building activities that engage employees, families and friends who want moms and babies to be healthy and strong.
  • YOU’RE HONORING motherhood, babies and those who’ve experienced loss by staying active and creating change.
  • YOU’RE CARING for all families throughout their pregnancy—whether it goes as planned or has unexpected challenges— by raising critical funds, so moms and babies get the best possible start.

Take steps with March of Dimes’ community to protect the health of families today and for generations to come. Join March for Babies to ensure every mom and baby is healthy.
