Meet Brooke, Alexis and Brynn Clagett

In December 2007, Thomas and Erin Clagett learned they were expecting identical triplets, who were due in July. The next month, Erin was put on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy. She was hospitalized in May because she was having contractions. For the next three weeks, doctors tried to stop the contractions but they were unsuccessful.

Erin gave birth to Brooke (3 lbs., 16 oz.), Alexis (3 lbs., 13 oz.) and Brynn (4 lbs., 3 oz.) on May 31. The triplets were born at 33 weeks (if a pregnancy is healthy, it’s best if a baby is born at 40 weeks) and spent more than three weeks in the NICU before coming home.

Brooke, Alexis and Brynn are now happy, healthy two-year-olds who are the little stars of the movie "Life As We Know It." As the 2011 Western Maryland Division ambassador family, the Clagetts will share their story, help raise awareness of premature birth, and encourage residents and companies to participate in March for Babies.

The Maryland-National Capital Area Chapter of the March of Dimes has a exciting new way to help our Family Teams raise money for there team. The Family Team sponsorship program is an easy way for Family Teams to ask local businesses you work with every day to support your team. Some ideas include doctors offices, daycare centers, gyms, car dealerships, restaurants, dry cleaners and businesses were you work.

Mission Marker Signs are placed along the route, and give walkers a quick chronological look at the accomplishments of the March of Dimes! Sponsorship of Family Teams provides companies with the opportunity to publicize their business on the Mission Marker Signs, while helping the March of Dimes improve the health of babies!
