The U.S. is the most dangerous country in the developed world to give birth. Every hour 2 babies die and every day 2 women die from pregnancy related causes. Your support helps the March of Dimes fund research, education, advocacy and programs that help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.
March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.
For 80 years, March of Dimes has helped millions of babies survive and thrive. Now we’re building on that legacy to level the playing field for all moms and babies, no matter their age, socio-economic background or demographics. We support moms throughout their pregnancy, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan. We advocate for policies that prioritize their health. We support radical improvements to the care they receive. And we pioneer research to find solutions to the biggest health threats to moms and babies. We also educate medical professionals and the public about best practices; we support lifesaving research; we provide comfort and support to families in NICUs; and we advocate for those who need us most, moms and babies.
All of the work we do is made possible by the generous support of our donors, partners and friends.
