Maryland–National Capital Area
Every year in the United States, more than half a million babies are born too soon. With help from our volunteers, partners and Boards of Directors, we work to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong. Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube and our blog!
The March of Dimes wants babies to get at least 39 weeks of pregnancy. For pregnant women, we offer information on why getting to at least 39 weeks is so important. Here is a news story from Fox5 in DC and our PSA to further explain why Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait.
By raising funds, donating your talents or joining us at an event, you make a positive difference in the health of babies and families in your community. Learn how you can help and get involved today.
From polio to prematurity: The March of Dimes has been working for stronger, healthier babies for 75 years. Your support furthers our mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. View our 75th anniversary video.
