November is Prematurity Awareness Month

Many babies of mothers who have preeclampsia are born premature. As the mother of two former preemies, I encourage you all to support the March of Dimes in its quest to end premature birth. Every day 1 in 8 babies born in the U.S. arrives too soon. Premature birth can happen to any pregnant woman. It is a serious, common, and costly problem. The March of Dimes is leading the campaign to reduce premature birth by supporting research and by educating the public and health care providers.

In tribute to the miracle baby survivors of preeclampsia, please consider donating to the March of Dimes. I would be so proud if you could. Thank you!
