March for Babies Kicks Off February 10th 2011!

Did you know that one in eight babies are born prematurely?  Many of you know that my first child was born at 34 weeks gestation. Fortunately, the complications were not that great, and we got to go home after 12 days at Watauga Medical Center.  This is why I am personally thankful for the March of Dimes, whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

The 2011 March for Babies Season is here! The  Starting a team is a great way to support healthy babies or to honor a family or friend who has been touched by the mission of the March of Dimes.  Anyone can start a team! You can gather your friends, co-workers or family to join the fundraising effort.
