World Prematurity Day is November 17!

The 2nd Annual World Prematurity Day is November 17. Please join the March of Dimes and organizations around the globe as we bring awareness to premature birth -- a leading cause of newborn death.
Prematurity can lead to lifelong health consequences such as cerebral palsy, breathing problems as well as hearing and vision loss.  In addition, it can cost 10 times more to care for a premature baby than a full-term delivery.
Did you know that 15 million babies are born too soon worldwide, and 1 million of these babies don’t survive? 

Help raise awareness of this global problem on World Premature Day, November, 17. Change your Facebook status with a message on premature birth, update your profile picture, share your story and read experiences from those around the world. 

Show the world your support by visiting today.
