The March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Through community programs, advocacy, research, education and support, we are working to give every baby a fighting chance.
Launched in November 2014, the Prematurity Research Center at Washington University in St. Louis will bring together the brightest minds from many disciplines to explore the unknown causes of early births. Learn more here!

Thank you so much for your help this legislative session. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the perinatal regionalization bill was not passed; however, we know we will prevail and pass this bill in 2016. We will continue to work toward this goal and will keep you updated on advocacy issues in the future. We encourage you to stay connected and sign up for continuing updates. Perinatal Regionalization will ensure that every mom and baby in Missouri has access to the right level of care during pregnancy and after delivery. It's the right care at the right time at the right place. Visit a special Facebook page to learn more. MOCares4Babies!
