World Prematurity Awareness Month

World prematurity Awareness month has begun.  This month is used to give awareness to a growing issue that needs attention and many families have to struggle with alone because there isn't much known about prevention or help after a baby is born prematurely.  Please visit March of Dimes for more details on this month and World Prematurity Day on November 17th.

Prematurity Awareness MonthNovember is Prematurity Awareness Month® and when the March of Dimes focuses the nation’s attention on premature birth. The awareness month kicks off on November 1 with the release of the 2011 Premature Birth Report Card. November 17 marks World Prematurity Day, and the March of Dimes and our partner organizations worldwide are asking everyone to help spread the world on the serious problem of premature birth.
