    I March because as a premature baby myself, I understand the concerns that a family has to endure when the joy of having a baby turns out to be complicated by having the baby a bit earlier than planned.

    As a ten-year-old I spent a year and a half with my aunt’s family and her newborn slightly less than two pounds child. My education in love, caring, and responsibility was about to begin. My Aunt pinned her to a pillow and placed her into a half-open drawer, because if you fell asleep with her on the bed you may roll over and crush her. During that time, I saw love as the family did everything they could, to give this child a chance to live. I learned caring as I helped to clean and watch that child when her parents were otherwise occupied. I learned responsibility as I knew that any careless action on my part could mean the end of that child’s life on earth. I came full circle when this child is a grown woman, in business for herself. I march for babies because I care. I care about educating family about health and nutrition. I care about communities that have a disproportionate amount of babies dying before they are born. I care, because I care to love.

    I have participated in March for Babies since 2007, when my second son was born 15 weeks early. The mission of the March of Dimes resonates deeply with me as a mother and a pediatrician. The life-saving research that is done to help save babies and the support offered to families through education is one of the reasons I continue to volunteer and participate year after year. There is nothing more important than investing in our children - they are the future. I believe in giving every baby a healthy start!

    I March for Babies because March of Dimes develops lifesaving research and evidence-based prenatal and ongoing care that affects all births and helps all babies thrive. I want to reduce the disparity in maternal and birth outcomes between black families and all other families and make quality care accessible and equitable. We have two sons and we were touched by the MOD Mission through prenatal care and guidelines that helped make our birthing outcomes possible.

    I March for babies because I was born three months premature in 1974. I had a tough entrance into this world but because of the care and support I received, I am a thriving healthy adult. I March because all babies and families deserve to have healthcare teams that are knowledgeable in all aspects of maternal and infant care.
