Why I walk

Hi!! Thanks everybody for all of your support for March of Dimes! We are working so hard to make sure every mom and every baby is healthy. Today in the US and in many places around the world we are failing women and babies - in the US, we have doubled the rate of women who die from pregnancy or childbirth over the past 25 years. We are also in the 4th year of increasing premature birth rates - babies born too sick and too soon. With better access to care, addressing implicit bias, empowering women with tools they need to better manage their health, and more, we can do so much better!

And now we have even more issues to face with COVID-19 - but we are working hard to address how the pandemic is affecting moms and babies. While we don’t have enough data to know exactly how coronavirus will ultimately impact moms and babies, we do know, based on similar viruses – SARS, MERS, etc – , there could be higher rates of stillbirth, miscarriage and preterm birth.  We also know that if pregnant women experience elevated temperatures, there are often poorer birth outcomes. There is a lot we do not know but what we are doing is trying to educate and inform pregnant women who are anxious and afraid about how the virus might impact them and their babies. We have virtualized our group prenatal care support and NICU family support so that we can be there for these moms and families. We are pushing hard to pursue research that will ensure a vaccine is safe and effective for pregnant and lactating women.  

Please be a part of the solution for moms and babies in the midst of this pandemic! For every $50 or $100 you give, you are helping a women receive quality prenatal care, or providing support to a NICU family, or funding new research breakthroughs or more! Will you please give to be a part of a movement for moms and babies?! Thank you!!!

Every mom and baby deserve the best possible start

Two babies die every hour in the U.S. And about every 12 hours a woman dies as a result of complications from pregnancy.

It's not fine. That's why we March for Babies.

We march to end maternal death. We march for babies born too soon. We march for babies we have lost. We march for moms-to-be. And we march for health equity.

Join the fight for healthy moms and strong babies, and make a difference for families everywhere!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
