March of Dimes is the nation’s leading organization for pregnancy and baby health – and with good reason. They work tirelessly at making the five tenants of their organization successful year-after-year. These include: parent education, preventing premature birth, researching and funding genetic research, adequate health care and insurance for pregnant women and their families, and overall fundraising efforts.
The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. They carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives.
March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, low birth weight.
