March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement™
The U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for women and babies of color. It’s unacceptable. Together we can close the health equity gap and end preventable maternal and infant risks and death.

March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement™ calls on people across the country to unite and fundraise to make a huge difference for the health of all families.
By joining us in this movement:
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.
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.
motherhood, babies and those who've experienced loss by staying active and creating change.
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.
WHY WE FIGHT FOR HEALTHY FAMILIES
Each year, 1 in 10 babies is born preterm.
More than 5.6 million women have limited or no access to maternity care services.
The preterm birth rate is highest for Black (14.4%) and American Indian/Alaska Native (11.8%) babies.
