World Prematurity Day is November 17

Last Updated on Friday, November 15, 2013

The March of Dimes brings attention to prematurity with other organizations worldwide on World Prematurity Day. We partner with them to deliver information that impacts roughly 15 million babies worldwide—more than one in ten born each year. Preeclampsia is one of the leading causes of prematurity worldwide, accounting for approximately 15 percent of all premature births in the US alone. Please share this information, and help us make others more aware and supportive of our mission.

Here are links to some articles that will update you on the statistics, concerns, advances, action items, and reasons for hope.
