Thanks for visiting News Moms Need!

The March of Dimes created this blog to give moms the information they need to have healthy pregnancies.

Our team blogs several times each week. We cover topics on pre-pregnancy and prenatal care, pregnancy complications, and premature birth. We blog about caring for your baby with a birth defect or special needs, as well as “hot topics” in the news that affect moms and babies. That’s a lot of great info!

Check it out, and feel free to send us your comments. We love hearing from you!

Meet the News Moms Need Team

Hello everyone. I have worked in health promotion and disease management for many years (too many to want to count).  I have a masters degree in health science and I love my job as the Director of Health Information Delivery at the March of Dimes. Personally, I bring my experiences of rearing two children – a boy and a girl, who are now college graduates and working in their first jobs! (Yes, it flew by!…) My passion lies in helping parents who have children with disabilities. I write the Delays and disabilities – how to get help for your child series. I look forward to sharing with you.




Hi, I’m Sara. I am a genetic counselor and a health education specialist at the March of Dimes. I have two children in elementary school who keep me busy when I am at home. After taking some time off to be with them, I am back in the workforce trying to juggle job, family, friends, and on rare occasions, housekeeping. I would love to hear your comments, feedback, and suggestions.


Hi! I am thrilled to be a health education specialist for the March of Dimes team. I am a certified lactation counselor with a master’s degree in public health specializing in maternal and child health. I have worked with women in all stages of pregnancy and postpartum. I will be posting blogs on topics ranging from pregnancy to breastfeeding to infant care. I look forward to sharing information with you and hearing any comments or questions you may have!
