    Prematurity Awareness Month

    Friday, November 01, 2013
    Statewide
    Statewide
    New York, NY 00000

    The Empire State Building will Light Purple on November 17th in Recognition of World Prematurity Day! Premature birth is a very serious health problem with no country unaffected. Worldwide, 15 million babies are born preterm and more than a million die as a result.

    Preterm birth is the leading cause of newborn death in the United States, where 1 in 9 babies is born too soon (this translates to over 28,000 babies right here, in New York State alone). Babies who survive often have lifelong health problems such as cerebral palsy, vision and hearing loss, and intellectual disabilities. Although we have made great progress, the U.S. still has the highest preterm birth rate of any industrialized country.

    You can help! Join March of Dimes for Prematurity Awareness Month®, when we draw attention to the problem and the millions of babies and families it touches. Be a part of the many Prematurity Awareness Activities that are happening in your community.

    See New York's most recent grade on our Premature Birth Report Card. Raising awareness of premature birth is the first step to defeating it. Check out how the rest of the country stacks up on this U.S. Map of Report Card Grades.

    Families and volunteers can also send a “virtual hug” to show that they care about premature babies. The “Hugs” campaign helps dramatize benefits of Kangaroo care, which is when parents cuddle their premature baby skin-to-skin. Join the global community at facebook.com/worldprematurityday. Update your status or even your cover photo to help get the word out. Thank you for your support!
