Fighting For 37 Weeks or More!
Imagine having a baby three months early that weighs less than two pounds. You don’t know if your child will survive. You don’t understand why this has happened.
Babies are born too soon every day in West Michigan and communities across the nation. More than half a million babies are born prematurely each year in the United States—an increase of 30 percent since 1981. Premature birth is the #1 cause of death during the first month of life. Even babies born just a few weeks too soon can face serious health challenges and are at risk for lifelong disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, lung problems, and vision and hearing loss.
The March of Dimes is inspired by all babies—those born healthy and those who need our help to survive and thrive. The March of Dimes is funding all-important research by the best scientists to learn ways to help more pregnancies go full term (at least 37 completed weeks).
