March of Dimes is celebrating moms and putting them first!

Having a baby is all about firsts: the first smile, first tooth, first diaper change. But babies aren’t the only ones growing—new parents are also learning for the very first time—even if it’s not their first baby! The milestones of parenthood are not always acknowledged or celebrated to the same extent as those children achieve. March of Dimes can prove that “It Starts With Mom” by flipping the script and celebrate parents’ big moments — big and small – from the first chocolate craving to the first hour-long nap.

Every mom deserves access to quality care throughout the pregnancy journey. Whether you’re a seasoned mom or mom-to-be, March of Dimes is here with you throughout your pregnancy journey, whether celebrating your milestones as a new mom or giving you tools you need to get the best possible start. Our annual It Starts With Mom campaign celebrates and supports mom in several ways:

  • Honoring NICU and military moms by giving them a shower they’ll always remember
  • Unveiling new consumer education materials
  • Inviting moms to engage with our robust social campaign throughout the month of May
  • Our signature event, It Starts With Mom Live. 

Join us on Thursday, May 5 from 11-2 p.m. ET for our third annual It Starts With Mom Live featuring keynote speaker singer, actor, producer and author Kelly Rowland. From self-care to mom’s firsts—hear from celebrity moderators, influencers and health experts through lively discussions and engaging conversations. From Managing the Motherload to Reimagining the Workplace to Improving the Future plus a few special features in between… because no matter what today brings, It Starts With Mom.

Register to join the event, or watch it live on our March of Dimes YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch channels!
