Premature birth is the #1 killer of babies.

But it doesn't have to be.

By raising money in March for Babies, you're supporting programs that help moms have healthy,
full-term pregnancies, and funding research to find causes and preventions.


Jaden's story

Jaden Dozzie was born at 29 weeks, weighing just 3 pounds, 7 ounces. He spent 8 weeks fighting for his life in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU). Today, Jaden is an independent, loving and energetic 3-year-old. His story has a happy ending, but many of the 1 in 10 babies born prematurely in the United States do not.

March for Babies is our biggest weapon in the fight against premature birth, raising funds to help more moms have healthy, full-term babies as well as research to find why it occurs and preventions to keep it from happening.
