Angie Supports March for Babies

I participate to help all moms and families experience the joy of a healthy baby. With nearly 4 million babies born each year, we have a lot of work to do to help them all. The funds I raise enable March of Dimes to support research, lead programs and provide education and advocacy that truly makes a difference to families in our community and across the country.


In my work as a NICU family support program coordinator, at Children’s Wisconsin, Milwaukee, I see how these funds raised pays it forward 
from helping families understand and navigate the hospital with their newborn baby, from educational classes and resource booklets and on line tutorials and the MY NICU baby AP to explain the medical equipment and medical diagnosis, to improving the family and patient experience through normalizing events like celebrating babies first milestones - scrapbooking, journaling, to decorating holiday costumes for their fragile babies, to supporting families that have a baby die in the hospital with resources for memory making, coping and how to explain death to their older children or young children within the family system.


I know a glimpse of parenting in the NICU as well - because both of my children had short NICU stays after their births due to complications! And in between both children - we had an early miscarriage in 2009, where we received grief and loss recourses from the March of Dimes.

We are blessed and thankful our kids are now healthy and active ages 10 and 16.


If you believe, like WE do, that every baby deserves the best possible start, please march with us and make a donation to support this community effort. Together we can fight for the health of all moms and babies and families!


Thank you !
Angie, Chad, Emily, Benjamin, and Echo 🐾💜
