Please take a moment to remember the little ones who aren’t here and the families who deal every day with the loss. Whether a pregnancy lasted only days or went to full term, whether a baby was stillborn, never made it out of the NICU or went home for a time, chances are everyone reading this has experienced or knows someone who has experienced the loss of a pregnancy or an infant. And no matter how long it has been, they still remember.
Please, visit The March of Dimes’ Website to see what you can do to help prevent prematurity. Visit Resolve, the National Infertility Association’s website to see what you can do to help advance infertility research.
Prematurity has been escalating steadily and alarmingly over the past two decades. One out of eight babies is born prematurely in the United States. Preterm delivery can happen to any pregnant woman.
