Every year in the United States, nearly half a million babies are born too soon, 4,000 of them right here in Connecticut. With your help, we work to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
Connecticut is no stranger to the sudden devastation that can occur during a natural disaster such as a hurricane or large winter storm. The March of Dimes has important tips for preparing for an emergency or possible evacuaton, especially if you are pregnant. It's never too late to make a plan for your family.
Prematurity Awareness Month (November) is just around the corner! Help us raise awareness with our 2nd annual Connecticut Families Prematurity Photo Gallery. Simply email "then and now" photos of your little one, along with a brief description of their journey (i.e. when they were born, how early, weight, etc) and starting in November, we'll post them to Facebook and Twitter to highlight just how many families in Connecticut are affected by the critical health crisis.
