Each year, thousands of moms and babies deal with complications from pregnancy and premature birth. More than 380,000 babies are born prematurely in our country every year and about 700 women die from pregnancy-related causes in the U.S. More than 60 percent of those deaths are preventable.
Premature birth and its complications are the largest contributors to babies dying in the first year of life. It’s not fine. But with your help it can be. That’s why it’s so important for us to come together as a community to create awareness and find solutions that help moms and babies be healthy. Join March for Babies and stand with thousands of people across the country who share your commitment to building a brighter future for us all.

You advocate for policies that prioritize their health. You fund research to find solutions to the biggest health threats. And you support moms through every stage of the pregnancy journey, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan.
