Every year in the United States, nearly half a million babies are born too soon, 4,000 of them right here in Connecticut. With your help, we work to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
March is National Nutrition Month, and if you're pregnant, eating a healthy diet has never been more important! Most pregnant women need only about 300 extra calories per day. And remember to take that folic acid! Get more great tips about what to eat (and how much), what foods to avoid during pregnancy, and cooking food safely.
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.
