Programs directly impact our communities
With your support, March of Dimes touches every aspect of the pregnancy journey. Through a variety of programs, we serve specific maternal and infant health needs throughout the U.S.
Finding new maternal and infant health solutions through research
The need for health care services for moms and babies is far reaching and crucial. Millions of babies are born each year in the U.S. Yet, when 1 in 10 babies is born too soon, it’s clear the need exists. Research enables us to find real solutions to health care challenges that affect families.
Policy and advocacy drive the change needed in health care
We work toward a world where every family, mom and baby are healthy and strong, regardless of their wealth, race, gender or geography. Learn how, together with our partners, we turn needs into action, and action into results.
Health professionals are essential to our success
We know that health care professionals bring the research, technology and medical expertise to the fight for healthy moms and babies—and make sure these vital services are put into action. If you’re a health professional, learn about our resources, including continuing education courses, scholarships and awards and other programs.
Using data and evaluation to guide our work
Raising awareness of the maternal and infant health crisis we’re facing today and sharing it publicly is our biggest strength. We publish scientific data reports, including Nowhere to Go: Maternity Care Deserts Across the U.S. and the March of Dimes Report Card to highlight the issue. In fact, it's this data and evaluation that drives all the work that we do.
Campaigns and initiatives make it all possible with funding
Many families are impacted by lack of available care, a health equity gap and pregnancy complications. To make a difference, it takes funding. Events and campaigns make it possible for us to be there for families when they need us most.
