November is Prematurity Awareness Month

Premature birth (before 37 weeks of pregnancy) is the #1 killer of babies in the U.S., and the leading cause of death of children under age 5 around the world. Babies who survive an early birth often face serious and lifelong health problems, including breathing problems, jaundice, vision loss, cerebral palsy and intellectual delays. The March of Dimes has designated November as Permaturity Awareness Month with World Prematurity Day (WPD) on November 17, 2016.  Here are some ways that you can get involved and spread the message:

  •  Send a card to a family with a sick or premature baby in newborn intensive care
  • Join a social movement by sharing #babysfirst
  • Observe World Prematurity Day on Nov. 17 by wearing purple
  • Share your story on the TPA Facebook Page or on the March of Dimes Facebook Page
