MARCH FOR BABIES

A mother of a movement

FIGHT FOR THE HEALTH OF ALL MOMS AND BABIES.


WE NEED TO UNITE, CONNECT AND FIGHT FOR FAMILIES NOW.

With preterm birth and maternal death rates continuing to rise, the U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for women and babies of color.

By joining March for Babies: A Mother of a Movement you're lifting up communities, creating connections and taking action to make America a more equitable place and ensure that every mom and baby is healthy.

Together, let’s be a part of something big.

TAKE THE MARCH FOR BABIES STEP UP CHALLENGE!

Together, let's take 500 million steps in honor of the nearly 500,000 babies born preterm or with birth defects—a new way to raise critical funds for moms, babies and families.

the stories that inspire the movement

MEET THE RAZZAK FAMILY

Pregnancy can be challenging at any time. Now imagine giving birth months too soon during the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 24, Alicia was diagnosed with coronavirus while pregnant.

MEET THE KILGORE FAMILY

Dani's journey to motherhood wasn't picture perfect. In 2010 she experienced her first devastating miscarriage, but she was able to try again.

MEET THE MOSELEY FAMILY

Early in the pregnancy of her son, Adrian, Keelee Moseley sensed something might be wrong. She went for a checkup, but the doctor said everything was fine and normal. She insisted that he check her cervix.
