MARCH FOR BABIES:A MOTHER OF A MOVEMENT™
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!
Join the movement
When you join March for Babies, you’re joining the movement to improve health outcomes for families because our country is facing a maternal and infant health crisis. It’s unacceptable. Each year, one woman dies every 12 hours from pregnancy and childbirth complications, two babies die every hour, and 1 in 10 babies is born too soon.
As a March for Babies community, we’re better together. Whether individually or on teams, we’re all over the country becoming a part of an even larger movement to help March of Dimes work to close the health equity gap and end preventable maternal and infant risks and death.
Together at March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement™ we will UNITE, CONNECT, HONOR, and CARE for every family to improve maternal and infant health. We’ll support every family with health education and resources. We’ll help fund research to change the future of our children—and our children’s children. We’ll push for policy changes that protect moms and moms-to-be.
