About March of Dimes

March of Dimes helps moms have full-term pregnancies and researches the problems that threaten the health of babies.

March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. Through the help of local staff nationwide, March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. About 4 million babies are born in the United States each year, and March of Dimes helps each and every one through research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs.

Premature birth is the #1 killer of babies in the United States.

Every year, more than half a million babies are born too soon. For many babies who survive, the problem isn’t only their early birth. Babies born even just a few weeks too soon can face serious health challenges and are at risk for lifelong disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, lung problems, and vision and hearing loss.
