    November is Prematurity Awareness Month

    Did you know that 1 out of every 8 babies in Texas is born too soon?

    Your support helps us give more babies a healthy start!

    A healthy pregnancy and baby are a blessing. But some families have their hopes and dreams crushed when their baby arrives too soon, too small and very sick.

    Each year, over 50,000 Texas babies are born premature.

    Premature birth is the leading cause of death during the first month of life. Even babies born just a few weeks too soon can face serious health challenges and are at risk for lifelong disabilities. Despite advances that give even the tiniest babies a chance of survival, premature birth often remains a life-threatening condition.

    Many people don’t realize just how serious the problem is until they or someone they love has a premature baby. Awareness and education are the first steps to solving the problem. With your support, we can help raise awareness of this important issue that impacts families in our community and help more babies be born healthy.

    During November, Prematurity Awareness Month®, March of Dimes® focuses attention on the impact of premature birth on babies, families and communities.

    WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:

    Show people how much you care and Go Purple for Preemies™.

    On November 13, wear your purple and encourage your family, friends and co-workers to show their support.

    Let your voice be heard on November 1

    Send us a picture to post on Facebook showing your Purple for Prememies

    Your Community:

    -Wear purple on November 13th, Go Purple for Preemies™ Day.

    -Sign up for advocacy alerts at advocatetexas@marchofdimes.com.

    -Ask everyone you know to get involved, too!

    Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant:

    -Get early and regular prenatal care.

    -Talk to your health care provider about ways to reduce your risk of preterm labor.

    -Learn the signs of preterm labor and what to do if you experience even just one.

    -Take a multivitamin pill that contains 400 micrograms of folic acid every day to help reduce the risk of neural tube birth defects.
