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.
Wondering how you can help make a difference during Prematurity Awareness Month? Check out this cool calendar of tips for every day of the month! From changing your Facebook image to lighting your school purple, together we can all raise awareness for our tiniest citizens - the babies!
November is Prematurity Awareness Month! 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 throughout the month we'll post them to Facebook and Twitter to highlight just how many families in Connecticut are affected by the critical health crisis.
