Every week in Illinois, an average of 386 babies are born too soon and sometimes too sick. Help us reach the day when all babies are born healthy.
Our mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
In Illinois, 1 in 10 babies is born too soon. The March of Dimes works to end premature birth and other problems that threaten our babies. We help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. If something goes wrong, we offer information and comfort to families. We research the reasons why babies are born too soon or very sick and work on preventions.
