In Washington, more than 8,700 babies are born too soon each year. Premature babies often spend weeks in the NICU fighting for life, and often have lasting disabilities due to being born before they’re ready.
March of Dimes is the champion for all babies, those born healthy and those who need help to survive and thrive. Moms can rely on March of Dimes for everything they need to know about having a healthy baby before, during and after pregnancy.
