GingerTwins90 Supports March for Babies

My mother was pregnant around January 1990, and her due date was November 26. Instead, we came in before the recommended finish line of 37 weeks to ensure our health, by being born at 7 months, or 31 weeks. Or, 11 weeks early, or premature.

My twin and I, we are fraternal twins, meaning we are not identical, and we are different genders.

She almost didn’t make it, if not for the miracle of modern medicine, specifically, the drug surfactant, and the “slickness” of Dr. John Clements, and the genius of Dr. Mary Ellen Avery.

Today, we are healthy, and thriving, thanks to the attention given to premature babies and their health. 

This cause matters. This focus on preemies saved our lives, has saved the lives of millions more, and will continue to save lives.

WE NEED TO UNITE, CONNECT AND FIGHT FOR FAMILIES

With preterm birth rates continuing to rise, the U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for women and babies of color.

At March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement you're lifting up communities, creating connections and taking action to make America a more equitable place and ensure that every mom and baby is healthy.

Together, we’re marching to raise funds and awareness to transform the health of all families!
