Learn more about prematurity
Every year, more than half a million babies are born too soon in the United States, too small and often very sick — 10,000 of them right here in Louisiana. We need to fight, because babies shouldn’t have to.
November is Prematurity Awareness Month and Nov. 17 is World Prematurity Day. The March of Dimes has released the 2012 Report Cards on Premature Birth that grade the nation and our state on its rate of premature birth. The report card comes with recommendations for improvement.
